Emmanuel Berger examines the first expansion of the criminal jury in France, The Netherlands and Belgium from 1791 to 1815. He asks: can popular justice perform the double function of maintaining public order and protecting individual liberties? Do juries have the competence and impartiality necessary to fulfil their role? Which classes of citizens should have the right to exercise these prerogatives?
