"Overcoming borders" Human rights and dignity of those sentenced to deprivation of liberty: the leap of scale of the APAC model

The APACs (Associations for the Protection and Assistance of the Damned) are Civil Society organizations that manage the Reclusion Centers without the presence of the police and guns, that has the main goal to promote the humanization of the sentences, offering favourable and dignified conditions to its completion. It covers the punitive aspect and the ressocialization of the Law of Brazilian Penal Execution.
