Security is a global public good. State-level actors are generally doubtful and at least ambiguous towards any role of non-state stakeholders in security. However, states which are called upon to provide security, both to their citizens nationally and for the wider international community, have to connect with non-state actors. For the purpose of this paper these are identified as Non-State Security Stakeholders (NSSS). Some of these actors may be the subject of security concern.
