Abstract

The intensification of terrorist attacks in Europe, the worsening effects of the global economic crisis, the constant attention to migratory flows in vast areas of the planet and the frequent environmental disasters have turned back the spotlights on the “State of Emergency”. Far beyond the limits in which it was traditionally relegated, “Emergency” paradoxically entered the ordinary public debate, with the effect of a deeply transformation of the political mechanisms and processes of legitimacy. This article aims to reflect on “Emergency” as a normal and normalized instrument of power legitimacy, by linking it with (i) the organicists imaginaries related to the concept of crisis, (ii) the reframing of social problems in terms of security and (iii) the political and legal responses justified with the arguments of urgency, exception and necessity.
