To contribute to the debate about the relevance and the diversity of Brazilian agrarian reform, we intend to study the forms of organization of settlement territories in Brazil between 1979 and 2009. We will discuss the conceptual and political debate of whether or not there is agrarian reform in Brazil and the issue of procurement policies of settlement territories through the analysis of territorialized settlements in the five administrative regions. For this study, we will gather information on the forms of the territorial organization of the settlements from both the agencies responsible and through field work. This study on the diversity of Brazilian agrarian reform policies was started at NERA in 2007. With the support of FAPESP an CNPq we organized an analysis of rural settlements and we proposed a typology to better understand their territorialities and agrarian reform. Through this reading, we will seek to contribute to the reconceptualization of Brazilian agrarian reform.
