Summary/Abstract: In the last few decades, there were radical social changes in economic, legal, political and moral sphere of life. They made some new circumstances in the world, and even in our country. And, there are some very important events in progress that are crucial for the national security. The feeling of insecurity never has been stronger, although the security forces have never been more developed. The traditional attitude according to which the state is exclusive security “provider” has been abandoned. That is the start of new philosophy and culture of security where the non-governmental sector has a crucial role. Governmental sector operates more and more selective, focusing on “more dangerous” threats, while it is let to the society to protect itself from the other “less dangerous” events. In accordance with that, the subject of the thesis is the concept, place and role of non-governmental sector in the national security systems, and the organization and function of non-profitable non-governmental organizations and profitable security agencies – the so-called “security industries”: private companies for military management, consulting and military services, agencies for physical and technical security of people, properties and business, detective and investigation agencies and agencies for rendering other services. Finally, the thesis comprises a brief layout on the “crisis” of non-governmental security sector in Serbia.
