The regional powers and the political construction of space: the complex jurisdictions of the treasury administration in Brazil between 1821 and 1823

Claudia Chaves About the author


The period of the Provisional Government Boards (Juntas) in the provinces of Brazil was characterized by liberal-constitutional transformations and the re-composition of regional powers. In this work, we will show how the Boards of the Royal Treasury, traditional and jurisdictional forms of treasury management, became the basis for the configuration of new regional political and economic powers.
