O professor Ricardo Gilson da Costa Silva, Coordenador do GTGA/LAGET, publicou o artigo “Da apropriação da terra ao domínio do território: as estratégias do agronegócio na Amazônia brasileira”, no periódico International Journal of Development Research.
In the last decades, the territorial dynamics in the Brazilian Amazon have moved from an economic geography based on extractivism, with little labor and a low intensity technology, to the agriculture, where commodities production represents the presence of agribusiness in the largest tropical forest in the world. Two central issues prevail in this process: the metamorphosis of land into private property and the formation of a stock of land for the appropriation and domination of agribusiness in the region. In these terms, protected areas, under the control of the State, are systematically reviewed by the hegemonic agribusiness agents, aiming to broaden and deepen the globalized agricultural frontier in the region. Thus, land trade and pressure on protected areas indicate the new political agenda of the hegemonic agribusiness forces in the Amazon.
Keywords: Agribusiness, Lands, Amazon, Territory, agrarian space.
