Abstract

This paper argues that in central Cape Town different public spaces exist parallel to each other, continuing the long history of dysfunctional public spaces in South Africa. Privately policed public spaces are distinctly different from "regular", not privately governed spaces, they have become more public than they were before. Through time different public spaces developed their own cultures, norms and values. This continues, with the non-white poor congregating in "regular" open spaces and a white class in a parallel set of open spaces.
