Abstract

The rise of new global threats, which transcend nation-state boundaries, has challenged the way in which sovereignty and global governance is conceptualised. Today’s global world is populated with both state and non-state auspices of governance who contest within a regulatory space. Within this space non-state governing auspices often exhibit characteristics that have been associated exclusively with states. In this article we reflect upon the principle typologies of governing auspices that have developed to comprehend these new governing architectures. A theme that runs across these conceptual framings, and the debates that have taken place between them, has been the nature of, and sources of authority that non-state auspices claim. We explore this question by examining how a non-state governing auspice has derived its authority and how it has used this to enable it to act as a transnational governing authority. We do this by focusing on how FIFA sought to govern security at the 2010 Soccer World Cup that took place in South Africa. Our focus is on how FIFA was able to enrol, and coordinate, the resources of a variety of state and non-state security providers to act in a coordinated manner to govern this mega-event.
