VENTURA, Deisy and MIOLA, Iagê Zendron. The effects of transnationalization on regional governance: the case of the conflictive cellulose industry implementation in the southern cone of America. Contexto int. [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.3, pp.391-427. ISSN 0102-8529. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-85292009000300001.
The present article intends to compare the effects of the cellulose industry implementation in the Southern Cone of America in the cases that involved, on the one hand, Argentina and Uruguay and, on the other, Brazil, concerning the permeability among regulatory sets, juxtaposition of conflict resolution ambits and the social movements' roles. Parting from the analysis of these processes, the impacts of economic globalization are pointed out in terms of the flexibilization and deregulation of national legislation, limitation of regional regulatory instruments, inadequacy of politico-legal institutions to the solution of conflicts and inefficacy of social movements in facing them. Based on it, the need for the internationalization of the social movements is affirmed in order to face the permeability of transnational regulatory impulses oriented by and to the market.
