This paper examines spatial injustice in the urban regeneration process. It uses a case of Yongqing Lane, a old town neighbourhood in Guangzhou to illustrate how the regeneration policy evolution influences the social and spatial justice. It further analyzes how citizen participation unfolds during this process. To better understand the justice claims over different regeneration stages, this study employs a three-dimension model of social justice following Fraser to structure the analysis.
