Research seminar: « Selective mobilisation of ‘culture’ in judicial settings »
The seminar will address the question of the mobilisation (or non-‐ mobilisation) of the notions ‘culture’ and ‘cultural diversity’ by the different actors of the judicial system, particularly in family and youth justice.
Family and youth justice acquire access to the intimate and private spheres of families, including families with a migration background. The presentations discuss how ‘culturalisation’ and ‘migrationsiation’ are prominent in these institutional settings, which are not directly – or at least not explicitly – related to migration.
The seminar addresses the use of the notions of ‘culture’ and ‘cultural diversity’ by professional actors, their specific definitions and frames of reference. Also the different methodological or analytical frameworks that can be adopted to address the question of ‘culture’ or ‘cultural diversity’ in judicial settings will be discussed. Furthermore, we inquire what is the impact of ‘culturalisation’ in the ways judicial interventions are experienced and the ways in which judicial trajectories proceed. As a consequence, is it necessary for the youth/family justice system to modify its practices, and if so, which scenarios are possible and/or desirable
