Abstract. Urban sustainable development can be considered as the improvement of life quality in the urban structure which results in improving environmental quality. Accordingly, developing urban sustainable development leads to human sustainable development which contributes to the establishment of social capital and creation of social justice. The concept of suitability in development can be possible via providing the grounds for increasing citizenship welfare which results in the improvement in infrastructures and urban housing as well as fair and equitable distribution of facilities and urban services. Accordingly, citizenship welfare can be considered as the main axis of urban sustainable development which provides the increase in human security and social satisfaction. The present study is to investigate the role and status of the development of civil rights in urban sustainable development.
