LOPES, José Sérgio Leite. On processes of conflict "environmentalization" and its participatory dilemmas.Translated byLeticia Cesarino. Horiz.antropol. [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0104-7183.
This article deals with the environmentalization of social conflicts underlying the construction of a new social question, a new public issue. Like other analogous processes, the historical process of environmentalization implies changes both in the State and in the behavior of people at work, in their daily lives and leisure. Such processes are analyzed in order to frame the environmental issue as a new source of legitimatization and argumentation in conflicts.
Keywords : environmentalization; life conditions; risk; social conflicts.
