Spatial disparities are a measure of the unequal distribution of income and wealth, power and resources between peoples in different locations, and this topic has added significance when spatial and regional divisions align with political and ethnic tensions to undermine social and political stability. This publication contains a selection of papers presented at a UNU conference, held in March 2003 in Tokyo, Japan, which consider spatial inequality in Asia from a variety of perspectives by prominent economists in the area of inequality and development studies, particularly in relation to the Millennium Development Goals.
