The G‐7 meeting, started in 1975 in Rambouillet, is a yearly summit gathering the heads of state or government of France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States, enlarged in 1976 to Canada, and in 1998 to Russia (suspended in 2014 following the annexation of Crimea). The G‐7 is a critical part of what is termed “global economic governance.” The G‐7 emerged in reaction to the transformations of the 1970s, and in particular the need to involve heads of state and government in international discussions, and survived until the present day in spite of various criticisms against its role and influence.
