"A WORK OF GREAT AND SOCIAL SCOPE."

This Center will have of great importance in the development of the APAC Method in Brazil and abroad, as it will provide scholars, researchers, volunteers, authorities and society in general with an infrastructure for conducting research, studies and events around the APAC method. There will also be accommodation available for the reception and of national and international visitors who have the desire to deepen in the study and to replicate the Method.

"YOU CAN DO SOMETHING."

CIEMA will be directly connected to the Center for Justice and Reconciliation of Prison Fellowship International, based in Stuttgart, Germany, and other universities around the world, in order to establish partnerships so that more and more people can learn about the methodology, disseminate it and implement it in their cities.

A CENTER FOR RESEARCH AND STUDIES

TO FORM MULTIPLIERS OF GOOD.

This video shows the common prison of Brazil and compares it with the APAC.

APAC, Association for the Protection and Assistance of Convicted Persons, in turn, is a civil entity under private law, with its own legal personality, dedicated to the recovery and social reintegration of prisoners to custodial sentences. Born on November 18, 1972, in São José dos Campos (SP), APAC, as well as the FBAC, was also conceived by Dr. Mário Ottoboni and a group of Christian friends, with the aim of alleviating the afflictions experienced by the prison population, family members and the local community.

APAC - STAY TOGETHER! CONTRIBUTE!

WE CANNOT REMAIN INDIFFERENT.

THE MEANING OF APAC IS

"LOVING THE NEIGHBOR, YOU WILL LOVE CRIST!"

Composed of 12 fundamental elements, the APAC Method proposes to the prisoner called "recuperando" the opportunity to be co-responsible for its recovery and reintegration into society. In APACs, administered without the participation of the police or prison agents, prisoners themselves hold possession of the keys, and daily activities include work, study, spirituality, human valorization, professional training, mutual help, family integration, and others, making that the methodology presents excellent results. Proof of this, the rate of recidivism, that is, the return to crime, is around 20%, while in the conventional Brazilian system, it is around 85%; and the cost per capita of each prisoner (recuperando) costs only 1/3 to the public coffers compared to the same prisoner in the common prison system. In addition, no rebellions or acts of violence have ever been recorded during its 45 years of existence.

HISTORY OF FBAC!

Founded in São José dos Campos / SP on July 9, 1995, the journalist and lawyer, Mário Ottoboni, of the Brazilian Fraternity of Assistance to the Convict Persons - FBAC, is a non-profit association, under private law, that brings together, guides, provides training and supervises the Associations of Protection and Assistance to the Convict Persons in addition to advising the application of APAC Method in other countries.

FBAC also acts in the mobilization of municipal, state, federal and international institutions, aiming at the opening of new APACs. This articulation takes place with members of organized civil society, Judiciary, Executive and Legislative Branches, Churches, businessmen, authorities and interested in implementing APACs in their respective districts.

As a vision, FBAC seeks through the APACs, to humanize the fulfillment of custodial sentences, offering to the condemned the conditions to recover themselves also, to protect society, to rescue the victims and to promote Restorative Justice.
