Réformer le système d’exécution des peines pour mineurs sous le signe de la « bonne gouvernance carcérale » à Rio de Janeiro

Abstract : Based on a survey in two youth detention centres in Brazil, this dissertation sheds light on the role of recent changes in detention as seen in the practices of detention centres staff. This dissertation analyses the implementation of reforms in line with “good governance in the prison system”, which aim to guarantee the efficiency of public action, as well as to uphold the rights of young prisoners. This dissertation intends to show that the supervision of young prisoners may be understood through the representations, practices and interactions with prison officers and social workers working in detention centres, rather than by the evolution of penal philosophy. Law enforcement tasks are almost exclusively assigned to prison officers, whose role has become less legitimate in the moral economy of detention. They seek legitimacy through enhancement of the security paradigm. As for social workers, they are characterised by experienced social pessimism when it comes to the reintegration outcomes of young prisoners. The reform values educational work and reactivates a sustainable system of opposition between the two groups of professionals, increases interdependence, and gives structure to their practices, from education to security, social support and discipline.
