The extraordinary Justice and Home Affairs Council will establish a further course of action for dealing with the current migration crisis.
The Council will be debriefed by a number of EU and United Nations agencies (Frontex, the European Asylum Support Office (EASO), Europol, UNHCR and International Organisation for Migration) on the latest information on migratory flows and the situation on the ground. The Council will hold a discussion on the basis of this information.
Ministers will also be informed about the progress made in implementing the most recent EU measures, aimed at saving lives at sea, improving management of migratory flows and other.
The Council will also hear a presentation by the European Commission on its new proposals on migration.
Migration will be further discussed at the Justice and Home Affairs Council on 8 October and at the European Council on 15 and 16 October. A special summit on migration with African and other key countries will take place on 11-12 November in Valletta.
