Non-state actors occupy an irreplaceable position in the current global system. Over the past decades they have become so influential that any analysis of international relations is impossible without their characterisation. This article advances a controversial hypothesis that the existence of global civil society and the structure of global governance inadvertently supports the participation of "unsocial" nonstate actors. This article endeavours answer whether the international community should create specific institutions which would be responsible for controlling non-state actors? Is this the right approach for eliminating the potential of specific global threats derived from uncontrolled non-state actors?
