Author

Alonso, Angela; Costa, Valeriano; Maciel, Debora

Description

This paper explains the formation of the Brazilian environmental movement from the 1970s to the 1990s. The authors argue that this process went through three political opportunity structures - redemocratisation, constituent assembly and Rio 92 - and the challenges provided the steps for building an environmental movement's identity.
