He gives exam­ ples of such individualisation when analysing the situation of the ‘free wage labourer’ who has been ‘liberated’ from the constraints of the labour market in modern capitalism, which results in the loss of the sense of security and the necessity to face new risks.

The traditional support network of the individual is lost. Beck does not critically reflect on the relation between mobility and the development of ties across time and space, which Giddens (1990) refers to extensively as a new form of reflexivity, the point I will discuss below.

The model is based on two ideal types of social organisation in terms of the group’s approach to risk. In the first type, members of a community have strong commitment to strengthening and maintaining internal bonds. They are unwilling to work out the risk-related situation via internal conflict; instead, they will tend to exclude from the group those who have challenged the group’s norms through risky behaviour.
