Matérialité et juridicité. À propos du Fichier national automatisé des empreintes génétiques

Abstract : Materiality and Legality. The French National DNA Database (FNAEG) The French national DNA database (FNAEG) is devoted to the comparison of DNA profiles in the context of French criminal justice. The FNAEG is the subject of a legal concern that extends beyond the issue of evidence. The article proposes to explore the substance of this legal concern. We have followed discussions within the technical committee of the FNAEG on the preparation and the processing of DNA profiles that are compared and recorded in the database. Drawing on a “legal materiality” perspective, we forge the notion “objects-texts” to designate these DNA profiles and, to show the work undertaken by the technical committee of the FNAEG for ensuring that they maintain a set of principles of law: legal security, equality before the law, fairness in the treatment of cases, and proportionality of means to ends.
