The victim-penalisation couple





Denis Salas suggests seeing in our society and our justice a sort of waning of individual responsibility, of guilt, and on the other hand an over-individualization, stemming from an increasing demand on behalf of victims, which places our society under the empire of emotion. These two figures – that of the culprit and that of the victim – cross themselves in a rather unforeseen way. Crisis of an individualized model of crime and of deviance, and the victim’s feelings, demanding compensation for themselves, embarrassing the legislator and the judge. So, the subjective status of fault is bit by bit profoundly transformed, being gradually marked by the couple victimisation / penalization.
