Also on the agenda is a discussion about the extension of the temporary protection for persons having fled from Ukraine after the start of the war and the adoption of a Schengen Declaration.

Ministers will hold two policy debates. The first debate touches on a proposed regulation that aims to facilitate the recognition in a member state of the parenthood of a child which has been established in another member state. A second debate addresses the proposed update of a directive from 2011 on combating the sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of children and child pornography. The presidency will also aim to agree on a negotiation mandate on a directive on combatting corruption.
