Regional Urban Studies Programme

What is Regional Urban Studies Programme?

Regional and global trade was behind the founding of Penang as a commercial and investment hub over two centuries ago. The regionality and globality of economics and culture as well as the rapid development of urban living and urban politics continue to determine much of Penang's and Malaysia’s fate. In this light, we focus on Penang’s near abroad, and watch with great interest the rise of regional powers to see what it will mean for the country. We also participate in studies and research that are of interest to Penang state with regards to urban development, and contribute to both policy and intellectual discussions.
