L ‘Opinion

Bylined article by Camille Potier, Litigation & Dispute Resolution counsel at Mayer Brown Paris and member of the “penal” group at the Paris Bar, and Gaspard Koenig, founder and head of one of the top liberal think tank in Europe “Génération Libre”.

“In Finland, open prisons are designed with the idea that custodial sentence is not synonym of confinement, nor absence of material comfort but subjugation to non chosen rules”.
