Desegregation is a process through which members of formerly separated groups are brought together, often through the removal of institutional barriers to interaction.

The first holds that it promotes intergroup harmony and the reduction of prejudice; the second that it promotes social justice and equality. Exploring this theme, Professor John Dixon discusses the role of everyday mobility practices and choices in sustaining ‘activity space’ segregation in the historically divided city of Belfast over 20 years after the end of ‘The Troubles’.
