UNHCR Representation in Japan / Japan Platform Co-Organised Symposium
Syria Crisis: It could be Me, It Could be You

As the Syrian conflict enters its fifth year, millions of refugees in neighbouring countries and those displaced within the country are caught in alarmingly deteriorating conditions, facing an even bleaker future without more international support. With no political solution to the conflict in sight, most of the 3.97 million (as of May 2015) Syrian refugees in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt see no prospect of returning home in the near future, and have scant opportunity to restart their lives in exile. Inside Syria, more than 12.2 million people need humanitarian assistance such as protection, life-saving assistance and livelihoods support (as of May 2015).

Thousands have tried to reach Europe by taking often deadly land or sea routes after paying their life savings to smugglers. Many have not made it. Those who do, face rising hostility as refugees are conflated with security concerns in a climate of rising panic. This complex humanitarian crisis should be galvanizing a global outcry of support, but instead help is dwindling. With humanitarian appeals systematically underfunded, there just isn’t enough aid to meet the colossal needs – nor enough development support to the hosting countries creaking under the strain of so many refugees.

The objectives of the symposium are three-fold: first, to raise public awareness of the still on-going humanitarian crisis in Syria and in the neighbouring countries; second, to focus on required actions from the perspectives of protection and assistance for refugees and internally displaced persons, as well as to promote resilience of vulnerable people and impacted communities; and third, to discuss the role of Japan and civil society in meeting the growing humanitarian and development needs.

We look forward to seeing you at the event on 19 June 2015.
