Peri-urban planning in Indonesia. Contexts, approaches and institutional capacity

Delik Hudalah’s study examines and addresses the emerging challenges of rapid and unforeseen physical change, spatial divides, social exclusion and conflicts, and institutional fragmentation in peri-urban areas - transitional zones between cities and their rural hinterlands. Hudalah first sketches out the institutional contexts for peri-urbanisation and planning in East Asia, with a special reference to Indonesia. Emphasis is given to the impact of the global economy, neo-liberalisation and domestic institutional arrangements on peri-urban transformation and planning system and practice. In understanding how to deal with these institutional forces, he draws on network, discourse and opportunity approaches, especially from a sociological institutional viewpoint. Each approach is developed into an institutional capacity building framework to understand how planning, in the face of irresponsive formal institutional arrangements, could respond to the peri-urban challenges and contribute to the improvement of governance capacity. The conceptual frameworks are enhanced through the empirical cases of urban and environmental conflicts in North Bandung Area (NBA).
