On 16th December 2019, it was my pleasure to visit the Khazanah Research Institute in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to discuss potential research collaborations with Dr Suraya Ismail who also showed me around her social housing project sites. On 17th December, I visited the institute again to give a talk entitled, “Contesting Property Hegemony in Asian Cities”, based on my own contribution to the recent edited volume, Neoliberal Urbanism, Contested Cities and Housing in Asia.
