Dai processi agli untori ai processi agli errori: perché (non) impareremo dalla pandemia di COVID-19

Ferdinando Spina
The paper questions how to implement processes of cultural and institutional change under the COVID-19 pandemic. Drawing on the risk society and reflexive modernization framework, the paper highlights that the political value of disasters depends on the collective recognition of risks. As in previous centuries, such recognition relies on the detection of causality and attribution of responsibility. The paper warns against recourse to the scapegoating mechanism in the interpretations of the pandemic.
