Until the nineties most of the literature on spatial segregation focussed on the discovery of spatial forms of segregated places in Cartesian space, while analysing the forces that shape these segregated forms separately based either on positivist, behavioural, or structural approaches (Jackson & Smith, 1984). In accordance, spatial segregation has been defined in terms of the uneven distribution of predefined social groups in space and as a state of isolation in both social interaction and residential space dimensions (Boal, 1978; 1987).
