Description
  • Abstract

    The goal of this article is a discussion of current aspects of regional development within Metro- Jakarta (Jabodetabek), which is considered the biggest urban agglomeration within Southeast Asia. After a short introduction of demographic, economic and sociocultural features, the focus of the paper is shifted to aspects of regional planning, marginalization, suburbanization, kampung clearing and new town development. The present urban transformation is characterized by lack of local cooperation, insuffi cient governance and the rise of a booming middle class, which seems to be bound to widen the gap between (sub-)urban rich and urban poor and lead to further social unrest in today’s global recession.
