Resumen

LASCHEFSKI, Klemens  y  COSTA, Heloisa Soares de Moura. Social segregation as externalization of environmental conflicts: the elitization of the environment in the APA - Sul, Metropolitan Region of Belo Horizonte.Traducido porElizabeth Abdanur,  Leonardo Brito. Ambient. soc. [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1809-4422.

This paper deals with power relations within the consultative council of APA-Sul, a conservation area situated in the Metropolitan Region of Belo Horizonte. About this council, it has been observed that the popular sectors are underrepresented and the higher middle class representatives are concerned about the "slumization" of the region. Consequently, an environmental conflict arises around the loss of environmental quality in the area which is partly associated with the emergence of low income settlements. This equation creates opportunities for discourses that try to justify social segregation in the area and the elitization of the landscape at stake.
