The dispute between models for the countryside: notes on the agrarian issue in Brazil in search of a new paradigm

ABSTRACT The text seeks to present the discussion of the Brazilian agrarian issue from the perspective of the conflict between two models for the countryside, one focused on the agribusiness, and one another focusing on family farming, agrarian reform, and traditional communities. The present article intends to visit such dispute, to update it in the context of the coup d’etat of 2016, and to present possible alternatives to the countryside in Brazil in search of new paradigms.
