The politics of greenbelt areas in Seoul Metropolitan Area, South Korea

Summary: 
The politics of greenbelt areas in Seoul Metropolitan Area, South Korea: I examine the conflictual processes of political calibrations between state and non-state actors over the deregulation of greenbelt areas located in suburban and peri-urban areas of Seoul. The project further seeks to probe the natures of post-developmental urbanization as registered in the moves to deregulate greenbelts. I conduct this work as a collaborator in a research initiative entitled "Global Suburbanisms: Governance, Land, and Infrastructure in the 21st Century," which was awarded a SSHRC Major Collaborative Research Initiative (MCRI) grant.

The policy transfer of neoliberal urban policies from Western to Korean academic and planning forums

Summary: 
The policy transfer of neoliberal urban policies from Western to Korean academic and planning forums: This research is being conducted in collaboration with professor Bae-gyoon Park at Seoul National University (SNU), South Korea. We examine what policy agents and institutions, and academic circuits and networks, have been involved in importing neoliberal urban policies, more concretely the "place marketing strategies" that focus on the cultural regeneration of cities, and how these marketing strategies have been emulated, modified, and contested within the disciplines of urban planning, geography, and public administration in South Korea.
