Under the direction of Julie Desrosiers, Margarida Garcia, and Marie-Ève Sylvestre, this comprehensive title provides an in-depth analysis of the reform process, responsibility, procedure, penalty, administration and effects of the sentence, and restorative justice and human rights as well as questions the general principles of criminal law and liability.

Le droit criminel contemporain est dans un état de grande confusion, qui appelle une analyse de ses fondements et une mise en perspective de ses pratiques. Tous ceux qui «vivent le droit» sont interpellés, des justiciables aux avocats, procureurs, juges, enseignants, intervenants, policiers ou législateurs.

Devenue impérative, la réforme du droit criminel doit être envisagée de manière globale. De nombreux aspects de ce vaste chantier sont abordés dans cet ouvrage, quil sagisse de questionnements sur la façon denvisager et de penser la réforme, sur les principes généraux du droit criminel et la responsabilité, sur la procédure, sur la peine, son administration et ses effets, de même que sur la justice réparatrice et les droits de la personne. Des auteurs de toutes les régions du Canada font ici le pari dune réforme en profondeur.
