INAVEM is preparing for changes

27 Mar, 2017

In order to continue the work carried out by the State Secretariat for Victim Assistance after the May 2017 presidential election, Juliette Méadel created a General Secretariat for Victim Assistance, an inter-ministerial administration attached directly to the Prime Minister .

Its missions will include:
– to coordinate the action of the ministries in the follow-up and accompanying of all the victims (attacks, collective accidents, natural disasters, health accidents, other criminal offenses …)
– to improve victim support systems, in an emergency and over a period of time,
– to develop the digital tool necessary for the establishment of a shared list of victims,
– to extend the action taken at the International Conference for Victims’ Aid, organized on 9 January 2017 at Unesco.

French Victims with their local association “Remaid” are organising a National conference in Valence in the South of France. This 31st edition will take place on 22 and 23 June 2017 on the theme: “Violence at work: prevention and action – Towards a coordination of actors”.

The day before,  on June 21, the General Assembly of INAVEM will take place and there they will propose to their members  a change of their name in “France Victimes”.
