This thesis argues that spatial planning laws in Bali fail to achieve their regulatory objectives, finding that inter-related legal and non-legal factors contribute to this. Although the hotel industry offers Bali, and Indonesia more broadly, significant economic and social benefits, the failure of spatial planning laws has meant that these developments are not being sustainably managed. Drawing on original field research and case study analysis, the thesis proposes some possible means of addressing these failures.
