Abstract (EN)Going beyond descriptive analysis on economic segregation, this paper aims to answer the question of what social processes are activated in such contexts and how they impact on development issues. Specifically this paper uses an original dataset for the analysis of the impact of economic segregation on domestic violence exploring the mediating role of social capital and gender norms. We found that segregation has a positive impact on gender norms and this in turn increases the likelihood of domestic violence. Also in contexts of segregation, a greater intensity of social ties are developed and these networks in turn help reduce violence. In those segregated context then promoting social capital is a powerful mechanism for generating trust between women and helping them to improve their situation related to violence.
