The 'sensitive perimeter' of the prison: a key to understanding the durability of the penal institution

Abstract : Some relations which exist between a prison and its neighbourhood are often seen to be kept out of sight, under the seal of secrecy and confidential.
The 'sensitive perimeter' is studied in five different ways: 1/ Prison and voluntary activity, 2/ Prison and the local business, 3/ Prison and the local councils, 4/ Impact of the prison on local property values, 5/ The discourses of the authorities concerning prison(s).
In all of these, we can see that the 'sensitive perimeter' contributes of the success and the durability of the prison.
