Pierre-Victor Tournier, CESDIP

ABSTRACT
The privately funded Philippe Zoumeroff scholarship which was created in 2001 helps to sustain private initiatives from whichever country in favor of the rehabilitation of inmates and concerning modes of custody. Starting with this sponsoring experience done by the French Association of Criminology the author of this paper will analyze the means civilian society can use in a democratic state to participate alongside the state to the policy to reinsert former convicts and in a demanding peaceful perspective from society: the demand is on the level of civil liberties, equality of treatment and solidarity.
