Abstract:Current practices in urban (re) development processes have resulted in uneven development patterns causing spatial injustices. Recognized as the connectivity between spatial claim, spatial power, and spatial links, spatial (in) justice must be addressed through practices of transparency and the formation of solidarities across differences to change or reconfigure these inequalities. The focus of this study has looked at the role of spatial justice in the regeneration of urban spaces and the use of Dutch spatial policies as a way to measure spatial justice in two urban redevelopments in Groningen, The Netherlands. The two case studies have high spatial quality that results in just spaces. It was determined that if spatial quality is achieved (positive measure) – it can be assumed that spatial justice can also be achieved. These policies in the Dutch context give direction on how to approach spatial injustice as a way to mitigate unjust impacts on our cultural geographies.
