COSTA, Heloisa Soares de Moura  e  PEIXOTO, Mônica Campolina Diniz. Real-estate dynamics and environmental regulation: a discussion on the southern side of the Belo Horizonte Metropolitan Region. Rev. bras. estud. popul. [online]. 2007, vol.24, n.2, pp.317-336. ISSN 0102-3098.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-30982007000200009.

This article begins with a brief theoretical discussion of the production of urban space and the emergence of environmental regulamentation, especially in terms of urban expansion. Next, instruments of environmental regulation are discussed, especially the licensing of activities. Such instruments have created diverse social practices that articulate economic interests, the State, and social groups involved in environmental protection. The contradictory features of State intervention are also discussed, as well as the limits and possibilities of action by organized social movements involved in urban expansion. The text refers to a case study of metropolitan growth in the southern side of the city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. In this context, conflicts involving land use and appropriation are discussed, as well as real-estate interests as they add value to their products, thus reinforcing well known forms of gentrification and exclusion. The article also brings up the question as to whether change is possible on the basis of participation and conflict negotiation among the social agents involved.

Palavras-chave : Environmental policy; Real-estate market; Participation; Conflict.
