The article considers the phenomenon of solidarity in modern globalized society, its role in policy, which is formed and realized by the state. The topicality of this research is based upon the general changing nature of social dynamics in postmodern, which puts together trends of atomization and polarization with mechanisms of integration and cooperation; and also based upon developing crisis generated by COVID-19 and its multiple consequences, which requires solidary actions of individual citizens, social groups, societies and states, world as a whole. Relevant bases of public solidarity both in global society and national dimension are analyzed according to philosophical nature of solidarity, its development and practical aspects for interpretation and application before the crisis. Solidarity along with most other social phenomena demonstrates its instrumental and technological character, which is actively improved by institutions of national states when realize their interests. At the same time the civil dimension for solidarity due to permanent identity crises and multilayer life of modern society is quite fragmented and not enough stable, which prerequisites some constructability of the corresponding state power skills. Public solidarity in modern terms gets more contextual and temporary character, which requires definite efforts from corresponding actors to support its relevance by reproducing some key fundamentals. In terms of pluralism and regular novelty of public agenda mutuality and continuity of non-institutional bases for solidarity ties are always doubted, which does not fully allow developing institutional structures as well. State policy in terms of moderating development of social relations gets more active to pull solidarity for producing behavior models which are important for the current agenda.
