GLOBALIZATION AND DEVELOPMENT

I joined Dr Hamzah's lecture every Friday since 4 Jan 2008 with other 4 Master Students from Development Science Program, FSSK (I really respect them especially Zainal and Marcella... they are really good in term of inputs and response to the topic. They are also prepared for this lecture... Keep up a good job guys). I was enjoyed his lecture... Dr Hamzah very knowledgeable about the global cities and the globalization issues. I have new knowledge about global cities...after more than 16 years working as Town Planner... I never thought global cities has a great impact indirectly to our urbanization not just physical development but the function of the city and how its relate to overall our nation development. I also joined lecture on Governance and Development conducted by Dr Juneinah dan Puan Marshitah every Thursday. I really enjoyed their lectures. Its really open my mind about the definition of governance and the its role to our development.

I have read a few books and articels on Global Cities and Globalization such as "Globalization and The World Cities" by Peter Hall, "Cities in Evaluation" by Patrick Geddes, "Planning in Global Era" by Andy Thorley and Yvonne Rydin, "Cities and Globalization of Urban Development Policy" by Ton Van Naerssen, "World Cities and Global Cities" by Simon Paker and "Globalization and the New Urban Challenge" by Yeung Yue-man.

Today I am not going to discuss detail or give review about the books I had read. May be next week I will give my opinion and review about Global Cities in the context of Town and Country Planning.
