A Trajetória das Organizações de Agricultores Familiares e a Implementação de Políticas Públicas: um estudo de dois casos

Alan Ferreira de Freitas Marco Aurélio Marques Ferreira Alair Ferreira de Freitas About the authors


This paper sought to analyze how the trajectory of family farmers organizations can affect the implementation of the National School Food Program and then its execution locally. The working hypothesis is that the way organizations are settled determines how interactions with other actors take place within a public policy, influencing their execution. In order to obtain the results, the study of Espera Feliz and Guaraciaba cases, both located in Zona da Mata of Minas Gerais, was taken as a research strategy. The fieldwork has conclusively shown that the inherited social conditions and the rationality under which collective organizations are constituted conform the ways they operate and the way of access to public policies, which may affect the local arrangements and the results of the program.
