Abstract

The crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic forced massive public intervention to protect the economy and society. The social security systems of many countries have been called upon to face a new challenge with respect to the traditional risks of the industrial and post-industrial era, and the Italian legal system offers a particularly interesting example in this regard. These risks produced by globalisation and the overcoming of the barriers between nations are predictably destined to be repeated as the current war in Ukraine demonstrates, calling for a reconsideration of the fundamental concepts of social security through the transition from a notion of risk linked to the individual condition to a general risk fuelled by factors external to society itself. These new risks of globalised modernity call for a greater intervention of general solidarity and the tendency to overcome the traditional distinction between social security and social assistance that derives from an era in which social risks were easily distinguishable on the basis of the occupational or extra-occupational origin.
A crise causada pela pandemia de Covid-19 impôs uma intervenção pública maciça para proteger a economia e a sociedade. Os sistemas de seguridade social de muitos países foram chamados a enfrentar um desafio novo e diferente dos riscos tradicionais da era industrial e pós-industrial, e o sistema jurídico italiano oferece um exemplo particularmente interessante a este respeito. Estes riscos produzidos pela globalização e pela superação de quaisquer barreiras entre nações estão previsivelmente destinados a se repetirem, como demonstra a guerra atual na Ucrânia, exigindo uma reconsideração dos conceitos fundamentais da seguridade social através da superação da uma noção de risco ligado à condição do indivíduo para um risco geral alimentado por fatores externos à própria sociedade. Estes novos riscos da modernidade globalizada exigem uma maior intervenção da solidariedade geral e a tendência a superar a distinção tradicional entre seguridade social e assistência social que deriva de uma época em que os riscos sociais eram facilmente distinguíveis com base na origem profissional ou extraprofissional.
