Arthur Vuattoux is a lecturer in sociology at the Université Sorbonne Paris Nord and member of the Institute of interdisciplinary research on social issues. This book builds on research completed as part of his PhD which won the City of Paris Award.
Arthur Vuattoux conducted his research with two courts, followed several hearings, and analysed over two hundred cases involving adolescents. His verdict is that gender norms have a profound impact on the way in which the professionals consulted by the judges, and the judges themselves, perceive deviance at this age.
