Agent-based modelling has a long history of application in the study of segregation, but is rarely deployed beyond the examination of residential segregation. This study leverages multiple datasets: including census, survey, PGIS and GPS traces; in order to create an empirical agent-based model for the exploration of mobility practices between segregated communities in Belfast (Northern Ireland). In doing so, we are able to conduct novel examinations into the impact of day-to-day mobility choices upon intergroup attitudes and activity-space segregation; with policy implications for understanding and combatting segregation in cities around the world.
