SOUZA, Cristiane Luíza Sabino de. Agrarian issue, temporary migration and overexploitation: a synthesis from the Jequitinhonha Valley. Rev. katálysis [online]. 2018, vol.21, n.3, pp.611-620. ISSN 1982-0259.

This article is based on the concern that the agrarian issue and the overexploitation of the labor force are fundamental elements of the extraction of value in Brazilian dependent capitalism. These elements materialize the movement inherent to the general law of the accumulation of capital in Brazil. Therefore, the article brings the debate on the process of temporary migration of workers from the Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, as an expression of the dynamics of the accumulation of capital based on the maintenance of the land monopoly. Such dynamics impose expropriation, violence and overexploitation as a means of extracting value, in a reality in which underdevelopment is the only possible form of development. The aim is to, dialogically, articulate theoretical discussions elaborated by renowned scholars in order to build a synthesis that presents the most concrete determinations of the temporary migration in the Jequitinhonha valley, seized in the totality of the social relations that emanate of the Brazilian structural dependence.

Keywords : Agrarian issue; Temporary migration; Overexploitation.
