Éduquer la jeunesse délinquante : dans les pas de Mary Carpenter

Abstract : In the early nineteenth century, the Industrial Revolution and the correlated rural exodus engendered new types of precarious conditions and petty criminality in towns. In the European context, Great Britain became the early stage of these changes, and of the profusion of reflection and philanthropic initiatives such as those of Mary Carpenter, who devoted her life to convicted and reformatory school children. We aim to shed light on the evolution of ideas about juvenile delinquency and education at the turn of the twentieth century, based on the acts of the International Penitentiary Congress that began in 1872, studied through the prism of Mary Carpenter’s key ideas.
