Policy on Crime on Measures and Punishments to Deprive People of Their Freedom: Positions Held by the Candidates for the Presidential Elections of 2002 in France

Pierre Pelissier

In March 2002 the French association of Criminology has sent to the 20 main candidates to the French presidential election a questionnaire where the association reminds them of its positions in favor of the universal ban on death penalty, on the perpetual punishment, on the safety periods and generally on problems linked to measures and sanctions to deprive people from freedom. The author of this paper will describe the analysis of the answers. The questions will be put in perspective of the European environment.
