In the age of globalization, megacities of the Global South have emerged as the most contested sites of the socio-spatial contradictions of capitalism.  In contrast to deterministic accounts that have dominated the literature, I combine insights from the developmental state and the urban governance literatures so show that political and institutional factors at the national and local level can shape divergent trajectories of urban transformation.  Comparing the modal megacity in three democratic, highly unequal, globally integrated and rapidly transforming countries, I show that there is significant variation in the capacity of cities to coordinate growth and inclusion.  These varied outcomes are explained on the one hand by center-local state relations that configure the degree of city capacity and governance autonomy, and on the other hand by the degree to which the local state is embedded in civil society.
