Le rôle du droit pénal dans la politique criminelle de lutte contre les discriminations

Abstract : Today, the penal norm is anymore the traditional sanction against discrimination policy. Its ineptitude to offer an adequate answer has justified this situation; it still has a real function within this policy. The first function of the penal norm is to promote the core values of a society.Discrimination is usually assimilated with breach of equality. In criminal law, discrimination is linked with a rupture of human dignity, but as we know the penal norm is not fully applied.The treatment of discrimination is nowadays numerous (prevention program, criminal sanction, regulation policy) but on the other hand theses measures are not able to deal with criminal deficiencies. The system, today, can be improved, as it is so hard to define a role to each other or alternative processing option. Anyway, it is obvious saying that, in some cases, other sanctions than criminal are necessarily insufficient. The criminal policy has to ensure the balance.
