Jonathan Steele of The Guardian has argued that Bosnia and Herzegovina is "a dependent, stifled, apartheid regime". In his view, the U.N. control of Bosnia under the High Representative for Bosnia and Herzegovina, which he described as "UN-sanctioned liberal imperialism", creates "dependency, stifles civil society, and produces a highly visible financial apartheid in which an international salariat lords it over a war-wounded and jobless local population."

India

Indian society is divided into several thousands of caste and sub-caste. In the Indian caste system, a Dalit, often called an untouchable, or an outcaste, is a person who according to traditional Hindu belief does not have any "varnas". In the context of traditional Hindu society, Dalit status has often been historically associated with occupations regarded as ritually impure, such as any occupation involving killing, handling of animal cadavers or night soil (human feces). As a result, Dalits were commonly banned and segregated from full participation in Hindu social life (they could not enter the premises of a temple), while elaborate precautions were observed to prevent incidental contact between Dalits and other Hindus.[4]. Although generally identified with Hinduism, the caste system was also observed among followers of other religions in the Indian subcontinent, including some groups of Muslims and Christians[5]. The Indian Constitution has outlawed caste-based discrimination, in keeping with the socialist, secular, democratic principles that founded the nation.[6]. Caste barriers have mostly broken down in large cities[7], though persist in rural areas of the country. The caste system, in various forms, does continue to play a major role in the Indian society and politics.[8][9]With the prominence of Hindu reform movements in the 19th century, as well as the rising political power of Dalits in Independent India, Constitutional Laws have been passed banning the practice of segregation of Dalits, and affirmative action has been implemented to equalize the historical imbalance and underrepresentation of Dalits in society. Castes are hereditary systems of social occupation, endogamy, social culture, economic class, and political power. ...

Road signs outside Mecca show the turnoff to the road nicknamed the "Christian Bypass" that non-Muslims must take. Non-Muslims are prohibited from entering Mecca, and therefore cannot drive on the road going through the city.

Religious segregation occurs throughout the Muslim world, where nations such as Saudi Arabia deny non-Muslims some of the civil rights and voting privileges they grant to Muslims.[12] Many Muslim countries consign non-Muslim monotheists to the status of dhimmis, both officially and by custom.[13] There have been reports of imprisonment, harassment, intimidation, and discrimination based on religious beliefs.[14]In fact until March 1, 2004, the official Saudi government website stated that Jews were forbidden from even entering the country.[15] Saudi Arabia in particular is notorious for very stringent religious laws banning the practice of non-Muslim religions, even prescribing imprisonment and the death penalty for attempting to convert Muslims to other religions.[16] During the Conquest of Mecca, the local leader of Mecca was converted to Islam, and the idols of the native Quraysh gods were destroyed. Mohammad then declared the city to be a sanctuary for Muslims; since then to the present day, non-Muslims are not allowed to enter the city.[17] Such practices are called a "religious apartheid" by the Coalition for the Defense of Human Rights.[18] Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...

segregation: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (6646 words)
Segregation by law, or de jure segregation, of African Americans was developed by state legislatures and local lawmaking bodies in southern states shortly after the Civil War.
Segregation thus became the rule throughout most areas of the South's public life, but fls and their white Republican allies viewed it as an improvement--the separate treatment was to be equal and what it replaced was not integration but total exclusion.
Racial segregation is characterized by separation of people of different races in daily life when both are doing equal tasks, such as eating in a restaurant, drinking from a water fountain, using a rest room, attending school, going to the movies, or in the rental or purchase of a home.
