The chapter aims to provide an analytical discussion of the concept of social risk in the light of contemporary sociology and in particular of relational sociology. Risk is defined as a adequate/inadequate relationship between challenges and resources available people living in a certain social context. Three risk models are discussed: needs-model, transactions-model and transitions-model.
