This paper describes the long-term process by which social movements and world revolutions have restructured global governance institutions over the past several centuries. It also studies the nature and causes of the rebellions and counter-hegemonic regimes that have emerged since the 1990s in order to make comparisons with earlier world revolutions and to assess the prospects for the emergence of a more egalitarian and sustainable world society within the next five decades.
