Passés les murs : les effets du carcéralisme, ou la réadaptation sociale en substance de l’intégration des sortants de très longue peine

Abstract : If deviance is a social fact, crime is the embodiment of one of the most paroxysmal evils of society. As Durkheim points out, if the crime is pathological, then "the punishment is the cure" and the question is "what it must be to fulfil its role as a cure". As soon as the question of the penalty is addressed, under its sociological aspect, the prison questions. For the paradox of prison lies in the fact that its mission is to work towards the reintegration of those it locks up, while creating within it the antagonistic conditions for a promising reintegration. This paradox is all the more significant when the sentence is long. Indeed, the process of prisonism, or the incorporation of a culture of confinement, will hinder, in proportion to the time spent in the prison, the possibilities of reintegration of long-term prisoners. How, then, can the effects of this process of carceralism be mitigated? The preparation of the release, through the work granted in prison and sentence adjustments in particular, the support after release by the integration and probation services and by the network of associations... all these measures aim to offer the released prisoner the best opportunities for social rehabilitation. How then does the detainee take possession of this preparation, this social support? How efficient are they in terms of rehabilitation and resocialization? What are the obstacles to integration and what are the existing levers? This research, based on a theoretical review and qualitative analysis of long-term prisoners, seeks to answer these questions.
