If S.H.I.E.L.D. wasn't an international organization before aliens started invading, then it should be now.

Claremont turned S.H.I.E.L.D. into an arm of the UN in 1990 in Uncanny X-Men when the Supreme headquarters Law International Enforcement Division became the Strategic hazard intervention espionage Logistics directorate... Then half way through Garth Ennis' Punisher Nick Fury meets Frank in a bar and says "Fuck the UN, lets get #### done."
Actually, it goes back to Frank Miller's first Daredevil run. Blame/praise him for that much, with specific reference to the UN during those issues when Black Widow showed up poisoned by the Hand.

It's more than possible that eventually someone is going to join S.H.I.E.L.D. who outranks Fury, or will only join if Fury is subordinate to him or her and politically Fury has to comply.
That would be the World Security Council as depicted in Avengers.
