- PublicationAccès libreGhostwriters of crime narratives: Constructing the story by referring to intercept interpreters’ contributions in criminal case files(2022-11-2)
;Grisot, CristinaIn our paper, we examine the role of intercept interpreters in this storytelling. To do so, we employ the framework of narrative criminology, which has demonstrated the importance of stories for understanding both crimes and justice. Whereas previous research in the area of criminal justice focused on court rooms and police stations to study the making of the narrative, in this study we investigate the paperwork of case files. We then empirically analyze the mentioned textual strategies of criminal justice agents when referring to the contributions of intercept interpreters in order to examine whether the narrative deployed in the case file blurs or downplays the active role of intercept interpreters. Our study is based on material that derives from four case files from Swiss prosecutors in two French-speaking cantons in Switzerland to which we were given complete access. This material and our narrative criminological approach will increase our knowledge about how to critically reconstruct the narrative deployed in the case file of a criminal procedure.
- PublicationAccès libreImpression management in corporate corruption settlements: The storied self of the prosecutorial authority(2023-03-11)
;Bozinova, MelodyTransnational corporate bribery cases are increasingly resolved through non-trial resolutions called settlements. These settlements lead to a considerable shift of the prosecutorial authority’s role. Drawing on Goffman’s impression management framework (1959), this article conceptualises settlement procedures as ‘backstage criminal justice’ that aims to shield criminal justice practice from public view and showcase a team-crafted narrative. Our narrative analysis of a publicly available settlement in England and Wales investigates the prosecutorial authority’s impression management strategies within settlement storytelling. The analysis reveals three distinct and sometimes conflicting narratives of the prosecutorial role in settling criminal justice. These conflicting narratives reflect the ambiguities inherent in enforcing national criminal laws transnationally against economically relevant companies.
