The article explores the ways in which law has worked as a reservoir of theoretical categories to frame risk and as an institutional tool to govern it. It shows how this has affected modern liberal legal categories, giving rise to the emergence of a variety of legal security technologies whose main characteristics and functions are here discussed in detail. The evolution in these security technologies is analysed in relation with the changes that have affected the main governmental orientations in modern societies and related social control strategies. The article concludes with an examination of the overall political significance of an increasingly risky-oriented evolution of legal systems in modern societies.

Abstract

The article explores the ways in which law has worked as a reservoir of theoretical categories to frame risk and as an institutional tool to govern it. It shows how this has affected modern liberal legal categories, giving rise to the emergence of a variety of legal security technologies whose main characteristics and functions are here discussed in detail. The evolution in these security technologies is analysed in relation with the changes that have affected the main governmental orientations in modern societies and related social control strategies. The article concludes with an examination of the overall political significance of an increasingly risky-oriented evolution of legal systems in modern societies.
