La tempête au tribunal : Trajectoires de victimes et de prévenus au cours du procès de la tempête Xynthia en France

Abstract : A storm before the court. Trajectories of victims and defendants during the Xynthia trial in France
Based on an ethnographic study of the two trials that took place in France after Xynthia, the storm that devastated part of the French Atlantic coast in 2010, this paper considers the trial as one of the many dispositifs of the government of disasters. This particular dispositif is intensely characterized by transformation: it transforms 141 Abstracts a disaster and its protagonists, but it also transforms the storm itself to make it “graspable” by criminal justice. This transformation process forces the actors – both victims and defendants – to play an important role that accompanies that of judicial actors during the lengthy legal proceedings. This paper will also show that, during the trial, the various actors involved are engaged in a “game of scales” and multiple identification processes.
