This paper is not a research study but rather a preliminary framework constructed with regard to the problem noted in the title of the paper.

In the globalized period, they need the unified identity of global citizenship. And they should obtain a comparative advantage from every interaction with their own of other nations. Their comparative advantage, in terms of co-evolution, ultimately is based on global citizenship as the evolution of universal citizenship.
