Taking the Black: Restorative Justice and the Night’s Watch (Tyrion II, AGoT)
In this episode we consider to what extent the Night's Watch plays a role in the idea of restorative justice in Westeros and ask how we can begin to talk about "community service" when the service performed is either not recognised or valued by significant proportions of the community.
Mentioned in this episode:
Foucault, M. 1977, Discipline and Punish: The Birth of the Prison, translated by A. Sheridan, Penguin, London.
