This map, although featuring only a few “clubs,” shows that scarcely any states escape the club logic. Clubs are organized informally on a power basis (G8 and G20), enabling a partial multilateral dialogue to take place, relieved of the constraints dogging negotiations within global organizations; or they can be based on a coalition of states defending the common interests of developing countries (130 for the G77) to represent them in international negotiations.
