Urban development has not occurred equitably across the globe. In Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Singapore lead the Global Competitiveness Index for the world’s best infrastructure, while most other Southeast Asian countries trail far behind. My research interest is to theoretically and empirically explain how institutional arrangements foster diffusion of urban infrastructure development from more-to-less modernly developed cities.
