Justice et santé mentale : impossibles frontières

Justice and mental health: impossible boundaries
Edited by Camille Lancelevée, Caroline Protais, Tristan Renard and Sébastien Saetta

The relationships between justice and mental health, initially explored through psychiatric expertise, is not limited to the encounter of psychiatric experts and magistrates. They involve a diversity of actors at different scales, who cross paths occasionally or durably in different contexts. This issue and its seven papers aim to reflect a new field of research that captures the diversity and complexity of these relationships. Far from concluding with a penalisation of madness, a medicalisation of deviance, a judiciarisation of mental health or a sanitarisation of justice, this issue illustrates how these different evolutions lead to large-scale institutional reconfigurations, disrupting the practices and careers of both professionals and people who find themselves at the intersection of these two worlds.
