Many urban planners have used Lefebvre's concept of the right to the city as a dominant approach in urban studies. In this research, we try to draw a framework for the urban development of Bandar Abbas through the application of urban development components based on the right-to-the-city approach. Interpretive structural modeling is used in drawing urban development based on the right-to-the-city approach. The centrality of citizens in decision-making, self-management of space, the right to planning and designing the space, the right to transparency, and access to information at the first class are considered the key variables of Bandar Abbas urban development. The right to manage and organize the space, the right to accountability, democratic (institutional) capacity building, and social priorities in the decision-making process are the subcomponents of Bandar Abbas urban development. The presented model is the realization of people in space, where people take over the space and enjoy the benefits of urban life, if needed, they can freely express their opinions and limitations in the space and organize the city according to their needs.
