Consensus reaching processes in group decision making attempt to reach a mutual agreement amongst experts before making a common decision. Classical consensus models are focused on problems where few decision makers participate. However, new societal and technological trends may require a large number of experts in such processes. In group decision making problems involving large groups, identifying and dealing with experts who present noncooperative behaviors during the consensus reaching process might become a particularly complex task. Such behaviors might bias the discussion process and prevent achieving an agreement. This paper presents a fuzzy clustering-based approach to detect and manage non-cooperative behaviors. Such an approach is integrated into a consensus model suitable to manage large groups of experts in group decision making problems.
