The Association of Applied Criminal Policy and Social Reintegration, Paris (Association de Politique Criminelle Appliquée et de Réinsertion Sociale – APCARS), Paris

APCARS is a humanitarian association, a justice partner which places the victim, the defendant and the ex-convict at the heart of its action.Accordingly it works to promote an enlightened, humane and restorative justice. APCARS is one of the few associations capable of providing justice with a comprehensive, integrated offer, both social and judicial, a pre- and post-sentence operational platform dedicated to the perpetrators, the victims and/or their families. Its 30-year experience gives it a well established legitimacy. Its adaptability and innovative drive make it a powerful source of relevant proposals.

The IFJR supports APCARS within the framework of its Regional Service for Restorative Justice for Ile-de-France, the first in France.Following an initial evaluation of the opportunities to integrate restorative justice within APCARS in 2013/2014, the IFJR helped APCARS to design its project of restorative justice programmes, thus foreshadowing the possibility to introduce restorative justice in France, as results from the Act of August 15th, 2014 (art.10-1 CPP). A first experiment of the Convict-Victim Meetings (rencontre condamné-victime, RCV) was conducted at the beginning of 2015.  The IFJR continues to support APCARS through the evaluation of this first experiment and assistance with the conception of the upcoming programmes of restorative justice of the “SRJR of Ile-de-France”.
