    Urban regeneration in China has attracted vast attention around the world in recent decades. This article discusses several critical issues in China’s recent urban regeneration policies, including how residents and communities are affected and how their economic and social rights are protected, the role of governments and developers, and the interaction between main participants in a broad Chinese socio-political context. The article introduces Guangdong Province’s new master plan to revive its urban areas and examines how it intends to engage the government, developers, and communities in urban regeneration. The findings are drawn from reviewing government documents, interviewing government officials and urban residents, and conducting fieldwork investigation.
