Governing Development in the Era of Hyper-Connectivity

Cities series

Edited by Yu-Min Joo, Associate Professor, KDI School of Public Policy and Management, South Korea and Teck-Boon Tan, Research Fellow and Coordinator, Science and Technology Studies Programme, S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

At a time when Asia is rapidly growing in global influence, this much-needed and insightful book bridges two major current policy topics in order to offer a unique study of the latest smart city archetypes emerging throughout Asia. Highlighting the smart city aspirations of Asian countries and their role in Asian governments’ new development strategies, this book draws out timely narratives and insights from a uniquely Asian context and policymaking space.

‘This book is a timely and welcome addition to the growing body of knowledge on smart cities in Asia. Covering major smart cities in East, Southeast and South Asia, it thoughtfully examines the reasons why these conurbations are eagerly jumping onto the smart cities bandwagon, their progress so far and the key policies introduced. Focusing on an increasingly important region in the global economy, this edited volume is not only an important contribution to the literature but also an essential read for anyone interested in smart cities in Asia.’
– Kwok Yan Lam, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
