Law and Policy in Brazil: Protecting the Rainforest and Enhancing Communities
Unformatted Document Text:  Abstract A continuing problem in dealing with issues of global environmental protection is striking a balance among conservation and the rights and quality of life of citizens. This research focuses on whether policies and practices of international and domestic law in Brazil can serve as a model for other areas in addressing the dilemmas of environmental sustainability and the betterment of citizen’s livelihood. Applying qualitative methodologies, we examine laws and policies from the 1990s to the present such as Brazil’s Federal and State laws, U.N. major documents and treaties, and speeches from important political figures. Using the Amazon region in Brazil as a case study, we argue that one approach to this problem is to have both domestic and international law working in strengthening local communities’ quality of life at the same time that it seeks environmental preservation by giving more independence to local communities and promoting their environmental friendly practices. 2

Abstract
A continuing problem in dealing with issues of global environmental protection is
striking a balance among conservation and the rights and quality of life of
citizens. This research focuses on whether policies and practices of international
and domestic law in Brazil can serve as a model for other areas in addressing the
dilemmas of environmental sustainability and the betterment of citizen’s
livelihood. Applying qualitative methodologies, we examine laws and policies
from the 1990s to the present such as Brazil’s Federal and State laws, U.N. major
documents and treaties, and speeches from important political figures. Using the
Amazon region in Brazil as a case study, we argue that one approach to this
problem is to have both domestic and international law working in strengthening
local communities’ quality of life at the same time that it seeks environmental
preservation by giving more independence to local communities and promoting
their environmental friendly practices.
