|Other Titles:||“State’s Justice” versus “Personal Justice”: the Interactionbetween French Rule of Law and Corsica’s Vendetta|
National Taiwan Normal University Department of History
In the society of Corsica, vendetta is an ancient judicial system and justice of compensation. It has the function of punishing the anti-social behaviors whenlack of a public power. Vendetta, however, is unacceptable in a society ruled by law. For the past one hundred and several years, the policies adopted by thoseFrench governments to eliminate vendetta had failed due to the rapid change of the ruling governments and the lack of some long-term and deep-thinkingsolutions. Thus, they couldn’t solve the difficulties they encountered like the controversy on collective responsibility, the partiality of judges, the underpressuredjury, the perjury of the witness, the dysfunction of judicial system, and the involvement of politicians or law-executors in crimes. As a result, the crimerate in Corsica is very high, which is a sarcasm to the “state of law” image of France. If the French government could adopt the following measures, whichwere: expanding the tenure of governors, ameliorating the judicial structure, decreasing the influence of clans, and preventing of the causes of crimes invillages, they could probably solve the problem of “personal justice” challenging “state’s justice”.
