Sumario:The phenomenon of socio-spatial segregation has changed its traditional pattern mainly since the late twentieth century according to the economic transformations brought about the globalization, in its most developed stage, which is neoliberalism. Therefore, in this work two aims are pursued, on the one hand, to characterize the contemporary socio-spatial segregation pattern from the perspective of scale as a degree and as a value, and on the other, to advance on the transformations that agents and actors have produced. from the territorialization of their actions in the construction of urban space. For the development of these aims the author analyzes theoretically and qualitatively the characteristics of the segregative phenomenon on a periuban scale, concluding that although there is no metropolization process as in the global cities, the diffuse city will be found mainly in the cities independent of its preponderance —whether they are large or not—, thus demonstrating that segregation despite having changed its pattern —geographically the social groups are less distant— has not ceased to be a phenomenon that is increasing not because of physical separation but social.
