With the continuing plight of the people in Syria, the international community is facing big decisions in the tenth year of the crisis:

How can humanitarian aid still be provided in Syria? Which actors can ensure humanitarian principles such as independence and neutrality, also in government areas? And what aid will be appropriate in the future given the great destruction and the continued central role of the Assad government – only the short-term emergency aid? What about the rehabilitation measures for basic infrastructure, such as schools, hospitals, irrigation systems? Or a speedy reconstruction in the interest of the people in need?

The event has also arouse a lot of attention in German-speaking media:
