At the meeting of the entire cabinet, the committee is expected to initiate a reform of child and youth welfare by Family Minister Franziska Giffey (SPD). One of the plans is to set up nationwide ombudsmen to whom parents and children can turn if they have complaints about decisions made by youth welfare offices. In addition, homes should in future be able to be checked at any time without prior notice and without cause.
The cabinet also wants to deal with an evaluation report on the anti-doping law that came into force in 2015. The report, which is available to the German Press Agency, recommends the introduction of a leniency program. This is supposed to give athletes an incentive to reveal information about backers or criminal networks.
Another topic is the federal government’s annual migration report, which shows, among other things, the development of immigration and emigration. In addition, the 89-point plan adopted last week by the cabinet committee to combat right-wing extremism and racism is to be approved by the entire cabinet. Ultimately, the cabinet wants to initiate German participation in the new UN police mission for Sudan./hoe/DP/jha
