This chapter discusses the developments of the International Criminal Police Commission (ICPC) after World War II. It first describes the manner in which the ICPC was refounded and how the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) first rejoined the Commission but soon discontinued its membership. It then argues that the problems endured by the ICPC in the post-war era cannot be interpreted in terms of a politicization of the organization. Instead, the Commission was affected by political conditions related to the proliferation of the Cold War that influenced the participating police institutions in different ways.
