Les fichiers d’empreintes génétiques et les analyses d’ADN en droit pénal sous le regard du droit et de la sociologie

Abstract : DNA Fingerprint Databases and DNA Analyses in Criminal Viewed from the Perspective of Law and Sociology. In the field of police investigations and criminal law, the emergence of genetics has led to new technical and legal tools being developed and to a joint transformation of practices. The latter concern, first, identifying people on the basis of DNA; second, in a more exploratory fashion, predicting suspects’physical appearance on the basis of DNA ; and, finally, the international circulation of genetic data. Based on a current research project focusing on DNA fingerprint databases and the related technology, we explore the following questions : how is interdisciplinarity defined ? What practices does it presuppose? What resources can it offer? What challenges does it create? In the first section of the text, we outline the research objects and questions that we hope to address in our project. In the second section, we provide some points for consideration in discussing the benefits and challenges presented by interdisciplinarity ‘in action’
