Abstract

This study explores the discursive representation of urban renewal in Metro Manila, the Philippines in publicly accessible government, private and non-profit community development documents. I explore how development documents frame urban development. I examine whether and how the concept of social inequalities that often accompany urban renewal and gentrification become a part of this discourse, in light of the country's long-term plan to transform Metro Manila into a major global city.

It is important to consider the implications of such representations of development because urban planning in the Philippines has been associated with the perpetuation of vast social inequalities in the metropolitan region. The Philippines is an important case for this inquiry because of the social inequalities and economic disparities that have arisen out of failed development in the country and in urban regions in particular.
