In addition to focusing on sexual violence against children within the Expert Group, the presidency notes that preventing and combating human trafficking has become particularly important and topical in the context of the exodus of refugees from Ukraine and the protection of this group, which predominantly consists of women and children. Germany will therefore promote exchange and cooperation within the Task Force against Trafficking in Human Beings and the Expert Group on Children at Risk.
