Petites villes et enclavement socio-spatial. Le cas du KwaZulu-Natal (Afrique du Sud)

Small-Sized Towns, Socio-Spatial Enclosing, the Case of KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa)

Abstracts

Small-sized towns are an interesting case study for the notion of spatial enclosing. They are inserted in urban networks, in dif- ferent ways and they have a key function in polarising both urban and rural territories. At the local scale, they often present ele- ments of proximity which favour social integration. The analysis of two small towns in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal is a good way to underline the role of both private and public actors in the evolution of enclosing situations, in a broad context of administrative and managing redefinition, in the post-apartheid area. What can be the place of this urban scale in the newly created territories ?
