Justice and mental health: impossible boundaries

Abstract : The relationships between justice and mental health, initially explored through psychiatric expertise, is not limited to the encounter of psychiatric experts and magistrates. They involve a diversity of actors at different scales, who cross paths occasionally or durably in different contexts. This issue and its seven papers aim to reflect a new field of research that captures the diversity and complexity of these relationships. Far from concluding with a penalisation of madness, a medicalisation of deviance, a judiciarisation of mental health or a sanitarisation of justice, this issue illustrates how these different evolutions lead to large-scale institutional reconfigurations, disrupting the practices and careers of both professionals and people who find themselves at the intersection of these two worlds.
