This chapter explains how the end of WWII, the Cold War and the end of the Cold War have shaped the international judiciary, generating an ‘embedded' approach to international law enforcement. I continue the focus on the international judiciary as a whole, highlighting how developments in one region and domain affect developments in similar and distant regimes. The evolutionary approach of this chapter suggests that judicial authority evolves through practice and takes time, and that the overall international political context and parallel institutions shape the development of individual ICs.
