Introduction: based on the legal analysis of “The Strategy of National Security of the Russian Federation” as amended by the Presidential Decree of December 31, 2015 No. 683, the author argues that the sphere of social (public) and national security remains not fully protected as the fundamental documents do not provide for the forms of participation of civil society institutions, their place and role in providing security. At the same time, the non-state system of ensuring public security successfully functions de facto, even not being included into the integrated system of forces and means to provide security. Purpose: development of the non-state system of ensuring security. Methods: the study is based on empirical methods of comparison, description, and interpretation, theoretical methods of formal and dialectical logic, and specific scientific methods, in particular, legal-dogmatic one and method of interpretation of legal norms. Results: as the analysis of the abovenamed document has shown, the role and place of institutions of civil society in ensuring national security of the Russian Federation, their tasks, and also functions assigned to them are only stated in the Strategy in a declarative way, while the legal mechanism of their implementation is not specified. Furthermore, nothing is mentioned concerning the legal status of security subjects, guarantees of their social security and many other issues. Conclusions: in connection with the above, the author suggests developing the law of the Russian Federation “On Institutions of Civil Society in the System of Ensuring National Security”, which is considered to be an important and urgent task of modern legal science.
