« Our rural sense of place » Rurality and Strategies of Self-Segregation in the Cape Peninsula (South Africa)

Abstract : The local use of so-called rurality as political ways to protect whiteness within the very segregated Cape Peninsula is informing on some racial resistance to post-apartheid change in South Africa. As the country as a whole, the Cape metropolis is marked by high socio-spatial inequalities. Post-apartheid spatial and demographic changes accelerated transformations of local governance. In that particular context, recent claims made by local resident’s associations to protect their rural identity - characterised by countryside place names, farming architecture and European cultural landscape,-appear to be a strategy of withdrawal opposed to urban sprawl and new metropolitan governance. Eventually, the defence of rurality seems to challenge spatial justice in favouring close-knit communities and socio-spatial segregation.
