Abstract: This study aims to explore the factors of resident movement participation and to evaluate the effectiveness of movement strategies in the Urban Redevelopment Movement in Hong Kong by using Sham Shui Po Po On Road/Wai Wai Road redevelopment project and Sai Ying Pun First Street / Second Street redevelopment project as case studies. In this study, in-depth interview, participant observation, and documentary review were employed as research methods. Klandermans (1997) suggested “value of action goals”, “expectation on participations”, “collective benefits”, and “selective incentives” were important motivators for movement participation, however, this study showed that “selective incentives” were the most important factors for resident movement participation. Besides, it was found that the Social movement organizations (SMOs) were partly effective in their strategies. Among the movement strategies, internal strategies were more effective than the external strategies. In external strategies, even both of the SMOs in the two cases were ineffective to achieve the external goals. The Sai Ying Pun case was more effective to achieve the external strategies than the Sham Shui Po case because the SMO in Sai Ying Pun could attract media attention while the Sham Shui Po one would not.
