This paper aims to get a better understanding on the dynamics of spatial justice and social justice, particularly in the distribution of public services. Cities are the result of social relations that create abstract spaces, where the manipulation of power takes place to maximize profits for certain parties. It is a symbol where inequality often occurs, where it shows a striking difference between the rich and the poor. This difference does not only occur in terms of income but also the quality of the environment, public facilities, access to transportation, and the distribution of public services. This study shows how the concept of spatial justice is formed from the notion of social justice. This study will also discuss the relationship between socio-spatial structure in an unjust distribution of public services; such as access to decent basic living conditions, public spaces, and infrastructure.
