The legislatives evolutions imply an important recourse to the psychiatric expertise in order to evaluate the potential dangerousness of a subject. However, in spite of the development of techniques and tools for this evaluation, the dangerousness assessment of a subject is in practice extremely complex and discussed in the scientific literature. The evolution of the concept of dangerousness to the risk assessment involved a technicisation of this evaluation which should not make forget the limits of these tools and the need for restoring the subject, the meaning and the clinic in this evaluation.
