For our data on global citizens’ preferences for value orientation, we use the World Value Survey. Before we link, in Chap. 5, between global citizens’ preferences for value orientation on the one hand and sovereign states’ preferences for participation in multilateral treaties on the other hand, Chap. 3 describes the nature and merits of the data used for global citizens’ preferences. Along the key two dimensions, protective vs emancipative and secular vs sacred, yielded by factor analysis of the World Value Survey data, ten geo-historico-cultural groups are plotted on graphs: Sub-Saharan Africa, Sinic East, Returned West, Reformed West, Orthodox East, Old West, New West, Latin America, Islamic East, Indic East. Branco Milanovic’s (Shadows and lights of globalization. Globalinequality Blog. Accessed 25 Apr 2019, 2019) rebalancing between the West and the Rest gives a fresh insight into ten geo-historico-cultural graphs.
