summary

Contemporary sociology raises questions about where, how and why risks arise, how they are produced or constructed by society itself and how they are reflected in the everyday life of individuals. On the one hand, there are risks such as terrorism or corruption, which are rarely faced by individuals, but which change the shape of society as a whole. On the other hand, there are always risks present in the lives of individuals, either as possible personal events (crime, sports injuries, health problems or personal attacks on social networks) or as opportunities and challenges that some even seek out.
