Decriminalizationordecriminalisationis the lessening ofcriminalpenaltiesin relation to certain acts, perhaps retroactively, though perhaps regulated permits or fines might still apply (for contrast, see:legalization). The term was coined by anthropologistJenifer Jamesto express sex workers’ movements’ ‘goals of removing laws used to target prostitutes’.The reverse process iscriminalization.
Decriminalization reflects changing social andmoralviews. A society may come to the view that an act is not harmful, should no longer be criminalized, or is otherwise not a matter to be addressed by thecriminal justicesystem. Examples of subject matter which have been the subject of changing views on criminality over time in various societies and countries include:
In afederalcountry, acts may be decriminalized by one level of government while still subject to penalties levied by another; for example, possession of a decriminalized drug may still be subject to criminal charges by one level of government, but another may yet impose a monetary fine. This should be contrasted withlegalization, which removes all or most legal detriments from a previously illegal act. It has also been noted that while some acts have been decriminalised, such as homosexuality and adultery, others have increased in their criminalization, such as familial sexual activities, or incest.
