Abstract

This study uses Evolutionary Economic Geography as a framework to explore the evolution of regional development policy
in Indonesia in 1993 to 2013. It argues that place-based policy initiatives embedded in the spatial planning system played a significant role in addressing the geography of the uneven development. This study found that out of three place-based policy initiatives adopted in the National Spatial Plan, it was only one that was significant in influencing economic growth. In addition to that, path dependence and a weak convergence has also been observed in the economic growth of districts.
