SABATINI, Francisco  and  RASSE, Alejandra. Spatial segregation of indigenous households in Chilean cities. Andamios [online]. 2017, vol.14, n.35, pp.309-333. ISSN 1870-0063.

This article compares ethnic and socioeconomic segregation in Chilean cities. Data shows that levels of residential segregation of ethnic minority households are not only smaller than segregation of low-income households, but that this smaller segregation facilitates social contact across ethnicities and, consequently, less isolation. While patterns of localization of the poor conform to a high-scale segregation, close to the ghetto, the insertion of indigenous people in the city is modeled after the enclave. Indigenous people can, both, reside in areas of high concentration of their ethnic group, and experience a significant ethnic heterogeneity.

Keywords : Socioeconomic segregation; ethnic segregation; urban social integration; mapuche; aimara.
