    In assessing lessons to be learned from best practice in policy making and legislation, the trajectory is generally concerned with the way the developing world can 'catch up' with the practices or frameworks implemented within advanced developed economies. This paper considers the lessons that the UK can learn from urban renewal and regeneration projects undertaken in the 'majority world' countries of the Global South. The paper assesses the state of urban regeneration policy and legislation in the UK and presents a number of lessons that have emerged from different case studies of urban regeneration in a range of developing countries which could be applied to this UK urban renewal context to enable the achievement of beneficial outcomes.
