Mapping patterns of segregation in Dubai: towards a new research agenda for a social geography of Gulf Cities

Abstract : This paper aims to bring completely novel materials, from an unpublished report directed by Yasser Elsheshtawy (Elsheshtawy, 2015). It maps precisely urban growth and land uses in Dubai, drawing mainly upon quantitative and GIS analysis – land uses of gated communities, labour camps, maps of the distribution of the population (male/female ; national/foreigner) at the intraurban scale. This paper goes one step further, introducing indices of segregation and other ways of representing segregation (may by dots). Our ambition is to explore how segregation is inscribed in the city’s urban spaces and what are its spatial patterns. We will first start with a review of the literature, and then describe quickly the fragmentation of the urban fabric. We will then focus on the patterns of segregation and finally, in conclusion, suggest new avenues for research.
