We revisit the homogenization process for a heterogeneous small strain gradient plasticity model considered in Fleck and Willis, JMPS, 2004 . We derive a precise homogenized behavior, independently of any kind of periodicity assumption and demonstrate that it reduces to a model studied in Giacomini and Musesti, ESAIM COCV, to appear when periodicity is re-introduced.
