This thesis discusses the balancing strategies of states in a unipolar international power structure. The main argument of this thesis is that two unique characteristics of the unipolarity -lack of power of other states to balance against a hegemon and the complexity of potential changes in polarity after the unipolarity- lead great powers to simultaneously implement cooperation and rivalry strategies toward the hegemon and toward each other.
