Comments from External Reviewers
Contribution to existing knowledge - The paper visits the vexing question of better governance of cities which are facing insurmountable problems made more difficult through poor integration, poor consultation and participation of all stakeholders. The age old governance model that placed the government at the centre of urban governance in Malaysia needs rethinking and this paper makes a good case for it. The paper integrates the issue of new governance into urban economic development and globalization with special focus on Metropolitan Kuala Lumpur.
Evidence supports conclusion - The article adds to the growing corpus of knowledge on urban governance. Makes the case for rethinking the model that has served well in the past but struggling to cope with the present.The argument (for improved governance) is well supported by drawing on the urban life and challenges.
I have submitted four manuscripts to various high impact journal since May 2009. There are Urban Studies, Cities, Asian Profile Journal and European Journal of Social Sceience. I am waiting journal publisher external reviews and approval. The scope of my research for these journal manuscripts are related to efficient urban governance. I wish to publish these journal before end of December 2009.
