AbstractDuring the life cycle of an urban regeneration project, stakeholders enter and exit the project, which has different impacts on its sustainable development. However, few researchers have studied the dynamic changes in stakeholder relationships during a project’s life cycle before they discussed the management of the stakeholders. To bridge this research gap, this study established a framework to conduct dynamic stakeholder relationship analysis for urban regeneration projects based on social network analysis (SNA), which has been widely and successfully applied to stakeholder relationship analysis. A case analysis of the Enning Road regeneration project in Guangzhou, China was applied to illustrate the application of this framework. In this example, 18 major stakeholders and the relationships among them were identified via case-based content analysis. Indexes, such as network density, average distance, nodes of centrality, and stakeholder influence index that denote the network structure and stakeholder characteristics were obtained and analyzed, which provided implications to improve the management of the stakeholders in the project. This study indicated the values of dynamic stakeholder relationship analysis for the management of stakeholders in urban regeneration projects and could provide a useful guide for researchers and practitioners to conduct dynamic stakeholder relationship analysis to facilitate sustainable urban regeneration.
