This paper is a contribution to the 'beyond tolerance' section of the journal, and proposes a discussion on spatial orderings that, aiming to 'separate differences', ended up strengthening inequalities. The author examines different forms of spatial segregation as forms of injustice and inequality, claiming they need to be rethought and worked out with the specific tools of spatial planning. Some segregation patterns are thus entangled with spatial strategies, and by so doing they are understood differently, as devices of social and spatial segregation. Looking at examples taken from North American literature on ghettos and enclaves, the author proposes new directions in planning to better cope with critical contexts other than the us.
