This thesis addresses the management of social risks within an urban regeneration Context. In understanding why there is a need to regenerate cities and looking at the processes involved with that regeneration, the social risks associated with the project can be evaluated. The importance of how the project and the urban community interreact is a crucial part of the evaluation. The role of the management team and the public-private partnership are also incorporated to provide a holistic view of urban regeneration. The methodologies employed are that of case study, incorporating analysis of documents, semi -structured interviews and observation as a strategy for the evaluation. The single case studied was that of the A6 project in Ardwick, Manchester. The study findings were, while there was an understanding and awareness of the social risks associated with urban regeneration there was no formal management techniques in place to address these risks. Indeed there was a marked lack of risk management technologies of any kind for the social risks and this led to them being dealt with in an ad hoc manner. The use of even basic risk management technologies would prove innovative in the project studied and would serve to highlight the social risks at a stage in the project where they could be influenced by all the stakeholders.
