In this paper, Christian MOUHANNA discusses some findings from a study of relations between the courts and the Correctional administration. The study received funding from the « Law and Justice » Research Mission. It was conducted with the collaboration of Joséphine BASTARD, Patricia BÉNEC’H-LE ROUX, Véronique LE GOAZIOU and Benoît GAUTHIER.
The enforcement of sentences pronounced by the courts has recently become – or again become – a major concern, not only for the Ministry of Justice and political spheres, but even for the mass media.
