"War does not determine who is right - only who is left."
Bertrand Russell


The year 2011 saw the eruption of a civil uprising against the government of Syria following similar social movements in the middle eastern world – a phenomenon which was dubbed the Arab spring. After the events of late April 2011, when the government of Syria authorized a military intervention by the Syrian army against the civil population, the unrest quickly escalated and a full blown civil war broke out. This is why The Forum for the 21st century sees itself obliged to invite major countries of the world to discuss the possible solutions of this problem and to peacefully seek a ceasefire in Syria.

We would therefore like to invite the distinguished excellencies of the European Commission of the European Union, the Federative Republic of Brazil, the League of Arab States, People´s Republic of China, the Russian Federation and the United States of America to a meeting devoted to finding of a conclusion to the Syrian civil war.

The forum for the 21st century suggests six points on which agreement amongst the major powers ought to be made:

  • The hostilities are required to stop.
  • The end of hostilities is to be assured with a weapons embargo.
  • Free and equal elections shall decide the future of the country.
  • Humanitarian inspections must be allowed.
  • Humanitarian aid must be given.
  • A memorandum where the major powers state their precise agreed upon course of action must be signed.
Given the ongoing dedication of the major powers to peace and security the international community hopes and believes that an agreement between the major powers will be made and that the hostilities in Syria will stop.
