Social Justice, particularlyits evaluation and assessment, is one of the subjects which despite several studies and pervasive discussions are still considered complex and no agreement has been made on them. The present paper is an attempt to determine a framework for evaluating social justice in urban plans. In order to achieve this goal, some criteria which are derived from two analytical systems based on the theories of John Rawls and David Harvey, have been chosen. Thereafter, Social Justice in the Urban Renovation Plan of Khoobbakht Quarter (in the 15th district of Tehran, Iran) is evaluated according to the criteria. The main problem of the research is whether or not the urban renovation plan of Khoobbakht quarter is just. The most important finding of this study is presenting a system that can evaluate the subject of social justice as a philosophical phenomenon in urban plans. This evaluation can help control the development process and the amount of achievement of justice in the consequence of implementation of the plan. Thus, in assessment of social justice in urban renovation plan of Khoobbakht quarter, findings of this research demonstrate that the plan can’t assure social justice.
