1)In Chapter 2 of Incarceration Nations, the author describes visiting a prison program in South Africa that emphasized forgiveness. What role did religion and religious leaders play in that prison program?
2)The video explains why women are so underrepresented as judges. But there’s a big difference between France and England. Why does France have so many women as judges? Why does England have so few?
3)What is the importance of a “dossier” in a French trial? Who compiles the dossier, and what does it contain?
