This article explores the idea that racial segregation is a process operating across a range of scales of social life. The focus is upon how segregation unfolds and is (re)produced at what can be termed the ‘micro-ecological’ scale — that is, in the everyday, interpersonal interactions between people in informal settings. To illustrate this argument, a case study is presented of relations in the night-time economy of Long Street, Cape Town. It is shown how such relations comprise micro-ecological practices of contact and isolation that occur at levels of resolution seldom captured by segregation research.
