Neoliberalization of urban planning

This open-access Cities article caught my eye. The authors (Kidokoro, Matsuyuki and Shima) ask whether spatial inequalities have become more evident with globalization and neoliberalization, how urban planning has been affected by the mix between the development state and neoliberalism, and how informal settlements are are positioned in urban policy. The case studies are Tokyo, Bangkok, Mumbai and Jakarta–the first three of direct interest to me.
