2017 Scholar Sophie de Saussure has written a publication titled: The effects of punishment on the offenders’ relatives: Difficulties and discussion regarding their problematization at the sentencing stage. The paper looks at the problematization of the effects of punishment on offender’s relatives, specifically at the sentencing stage.

Sophie’s main interest lies in penal sociology, in the obstacles to evolution and innovation in the criminal justice system, and in human rights. Her doctoral work focuses on the sentencing process, particularly the way that it might better take offenders’ social ties into account.
