Abstract

The Group of Seven (G-7) nations hold economic and military/political capabilities in hegemonic proportion in international politics. Organisationally, the G-7 has worked during both the Cold War and thereafter to address a broad series of global governance issues and to develop global architecture. Yet, there has been little by way of systematic analysis to determine the extent of the group's cohesiveness, and the likelihood that such cohesiveness will endure in the post-Cold War environment. Here, we develop a method for assessing G-7 cohesion and apply it to systematically describe trends in G-7 cohesion since 1975 in the United Nations General Assembly. We conclude with some suggestions for future research.
