La prison dans la ville (prisons and cities)
Sous la direction de Martine Herzog-Evans, avec Philippe Combessie, Anne Hericher, Loup Noali et Francette Zenner.
Editions Erès, Société (Hors collection), 2009.

Des prisons sont implantées dans les villes. Invisibles pour leurs habitants, elles ont pourtant des effets significatifs au sein de celles-ci, sur la perception de la cité, du quartier, de ses habitants, sur certaines de ses activités, ses constructions, etc. Cet ouvrage, unique sur un tel sujet en France, a pour objet de décrire de manière pluridisciplinaire (un sociologue, une architecte, une juriste, mais aussi un ancien détenu) en quoi constitue cet impact. Scientifique, mais aussi plein d’anecdotes et de descriptions concrètes, cet ouvrage se lit facilement. Vous ne « verrez » plus « votre » prison comme avant.
D’origine franco-britannique, Martine Herzog-Evans est professeur de droit à l’université de Reims.

 Insertion et désistance des personnes placées sous main de justice. Savoirs et pratiques (Insertion and desistance of offenders under judicial mandate)
Paul Mbanzoulou, Martine Herzog-Evans, Sylvie Courtine (eds./dir.)
Editions L’Harmattan, 2012.

La notion d’insertion recouvre un ensemble de pratiques, de procédures, de mesures et de dispositifs. De nouvelles questions sont introduites, comme celle de permettre à la personne détenue de mener une vie responsable à l’issue de sa peine et de prévenir de nouvelles infractions. Comment atteindre ses finalités, sachant que l’abandon de l’agir criminel (désistance) résulte à la fois d’un choix personnel, d’un accompagnement, d’un concours de circonstances et d’un parcours singulier ? (Quelques contributions en anglais).

Martine Herzog-Evans (ed./dir.), Offender release and supervision: The role of Courts and the use of discretion, Nijmegen, Wolf Legal Publishers

In some jurisdictions, early release is automatic at a certain point in time; in others, it is discretionarily decided by a court or an executive authority; others still have a mixed system and, increasingly, others opt for mandatory post-release supervision with the hope of better controlling dangerous offenders. In some cases, due process applies and the independence of decision-makers is viewed as being paramount; in others such principles are deemed inapplicable. Some legal systems consider that release – , and breach issues – are part of a penal continuum that starts with arrest; in others, they are perceived as
belonging to the executive and as being strictly distinct from penal issues.

This book endeavours to understand these differences and tries and assess whether one perspective is superior to another. It wonders which one is fairer and more effi cient. It questions what efficiency means: freeing prison space, reducing reoffending, supporting rehabilitation, and/or being legitimate and fair? It wonders to what extent the answers to such questions are relative to culture, to penology choices (punitive, or not), and to the legal history and structure (e.g. written law or common law; adversarial versus non adversarial). It analyses whether due process should be taken into consideration. It also asks whether a legal system can afford due process in overcrowded and penniless times.

Thanks to the contribution of renown authors with various backgrounds, this book tries and answer these contentious issues, by drawing upon comparative and international law, empirical (outcome) literature, legitimacy of justice theory, therapeutic jurisprudence legal doctrine, and best practices (e.g. Danish collaborative reentry, drug courts or French reentry courts).
