Andrew Nathan, Class of 1919 Professor of Political Science,
Since the modern times, the world has undergone three waves of globalization. The first wave started from 500 years ago, with the European countries connecting the world by means of the opening of new sea-routes, the great discoveries of geography and the establishment of global colonial system. This is a linear globalization based on power. The second wave started at the end of WWII. The establishment of a series of US-led international institutions linked the world into a systematic international society. This is a flat globalization based on institutions. Nowadays, the third wave of globalization is under way. The rise of emerging newly-economies from the developing world and the effect of economic globalization have brought about a trend of re-balance for the world economic pattern. This will be a tridimensional globalization based on governance. Facing the advent of this trend, the Chinese government has proposed the “Belt and Road Initiative”, in order to propel the network construction of both worldwide partnerships and regional integration, with the purpose of promoting the realization of global governance.
