This paper interrogates the existing spatial realities of Johannesburg as it was shaped by colonialism and the challenges of providing an inclusive urbanism between the centre, the pe- riphery and the in-between. Johannesburg is a major urban centre in South Africa, with incre- asing economic and spatial inequality. The in- herited spatial realities are still evident today; these structural realities are restrictive, unsus- tainable, and disadvantage communities ecolo- gically, economically and socially. The paper is premised on an understanding that economic inequality is related to spatial inequality.

Abstract

This paper interrogates the existing spatial realities of Johannesburg as it was shaped by colonialism and the challenges of providing an inclusive urbanism between the centre, the pe- riphery and the in-between. Johannesburg is a major urban centre in South Africa, with incre- asing economic and spatial inequality. The in- herited spatial realities are still evident today; these structural realities are restrictive, unsus- tainable, and disadvantage communities ecolo- gically, economically and socially. The paper is premised on an understanding that economic inequality is related to spatial inequality.
