Abstract

During the pandemic, the European institutions, first of all the Commission, have tackled and developed various solidarity tools and actions to combat the resulting health and economic crisis. The aim of the paper is first of all to give an account of this intense activity, but above all to reflect on the meaning to be attributed to them, in order to understand how far the EU, and the member states, have gone beyond the current architrave of its constitution economy, i.e. “competitive solidarity”. As we will try to demonstrate, during the pandemic there were all the elements to be able to rethink a reconfiguration of solidarity. The principle of mutualistic solidarity, in the wake of the emotional flow, has emerged above national egoisms, indeed, governing them; a certain returning “normative cosmopolitanism” has also emerged, however feeble and not well structured. Which, this is the thesis supported, two years after the decreed end of the crisis is however struggling to take off, indeed letting a certain return to the past leak out. The one in which solidarity knows no discounts because it has a price in terms of conditionality.
