French reentry courts and rehabilitation
Mister Jourdain of Desistance by Martine Herzog-Evans
Prof. Martine Herzog-Evans, criminologist of the Université de Reims, reserached for two year and a half the role and function of the Juge de l’application des peines (JAP), a French reentry and supervision judge which had never been empirically studied before. Prof. Herzog-Evans studied their pratices both from the qualitative and quatitative viewpoint. She abundantly refers to international literature, with a particular focus on ‘desistance’, ‘therapeutic jurisprudence’ and ‘legitimacy of justice’.
