India will be hosting the 33rd Asian and Pacific Conference of Correctional Administrators (APCCA), 2013 in New Delhi from 22 to 27 September, 2013. The conference will be inaugurated by Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde.

This is a prominent event for the correctional officers to share ideas and learn from others’ experiences and give direction to innovative ideas in correctional administration and welfare.

 Apart from delegates from 23 member countries, the delegates from States/UTs dealing with correctional administrations will also attend the conference.

The theme of the conference for the year 2013 is Correction-Transformation-Re-integration.
The conference is aimed to assist the reintegration of the released inmates back to the society. This entails strategically planned custodial interventions which will enable inmates to gainfully employ themselves in the society and also to sensitise the societal acceptance so that they are mainstreamed without any stigma.
