This chapter discusses whether the changes that have taken place or are underway in the international system are likely to lead to increased regularity in future enforcement practices. It argues that the growth of international civil society and intensified interdependency between States has created a new ‘legitimation environment’ in which States are under increased pressure to justify their decisions and account for their conduct towards their own citizens. The international rule of law is therefore related to the concept of legitimacy and it is possible that, although deep changes to the international system are unlikely, future developments in the decision-making environment in which States operate may heighten future support for enforcement.
