(p.69) Chapter Two Variable but Durable Marginalities
Accumulation by Segregation

Ghazala Jamil

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the features of Jamia Nagar, Nizamuddin, and Taj Enclave. It takes forward the narrative of how in the overall logic of city as a vehicle of capital accumulation, segregation of Muslim population in specific neighbourhoods with their contained labour or fixed assets serves a specific purpose. In this chapter, closer attention is paid to built spaces—how discrimination in housing and real estate transaction not only maintains segregation but also aids the project of capital accumulation in favour of other spaces in the city. Muslim middle-class, educated, professionals in these areas are discovered as a specific segment of workers in the neo-liberal city. This aspirational class experiences a different kind of alienation in the city. While they push the boundaries that constrain them, they realize that these are shatterproof.

Keywords:   Aspiration, middle-class Muslims, real estate, labour market segmentation, capital, housing discrimination, Jamia Nagar, Nizamuddin, Gated Enclaves, David Harvey
