Abstract

This paper looks at contemporary debates in French prison provision, taking as its starting point the difficulties experienced over recent years of implementing a coherent and consistent policy which will tackle the most flagrant problems in the prison system in France. The uproar following the publication in January 2000 of Véronique Vasseur's book Médecin‐chef à la prison de La Santé (2000; le cherche midi éditeur) denouncing publicly the state of one particular French prison, La Santé, has brought this matter firmly into the public gaze and added a new urgency to the question.
