"Being a prefect is to do a job that comes with demands and responsibilities which are often not recognised. It is equally to accept a mission - that of representing the Republic. It is also adapting to the contradictions of the modern world." Paul Bernard Paul Bernard, a legal expert, has had a long prefectoral career which took him to various regions of France, including Aveyron, Sarthe and Corsica, before becoming the prefect of Rhône-Alpes and president of the Association du Corps Préfectoral et des Haut Fonctionnaires du Ministère de lIntérieur.
"Should homosexual unions be recognised? Can foreign models of homosexual unions serve as a point of reference? What was the process of recognition? What could be the consequences? These are but some of the questions raised in this book, which provides all the necessary historical references concerning the social recognition of same-sex couples through the ages. Above all, it provides information on the various legal forms that such social recognition has taken in France as well as in other countries in Europe and North America.

What is the meaning of a sentence? This is the issue that the present book faces squarely and directly, from the philosophical, ethical and political angles.

Frédéric Gros is a philosopher. Thierry Pech is a researcher.
What is the value of the testimony of a minor who declares having been sexually abused by a family member? What procedures does the judiciary follow to try to prevent the risk of a false allegation?

The author goes on to ask if the time has not come to reconsider the status of the victim in these penal proceedings. Gilles Antonowicz is a lawyer specialising in cases concerning the sexual abuse of minors.
