Social dimensions of urban regeneration: discourses, policies and practices of social sustainability in Hastings, England

  • Johanne Marie Orchard-Webb

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This thesis develops an alternative critique of social urban regeneration practice by using a political-governance approach to examine the impact of regeneration governance upon barriers and opportunities for social sustainability. The research responds to a call from scholars to refocus sustainability research on the institutional, political and governance space that fosters or marginalises its presence and form.
