ISIDRO, María Eugenia  y  FORLANI, Nicolás. Right and agribusiness in Argentina and Brazil. Changes and continuities. Universitas [online]. 2019, n.31, pp.59-77. ISSN 1390-8634.

One of the most expanded forms of accumulation by dispossession in South America is the advancement of agribusiness. This neoextractivist logic has expanded in Argentina and Brazil even in the framework of the political alternations that both countries have experienced in recent years. However, it is possible to notice contrasts in relation to government policies for the agrarian sector according to the political sign that is alluded to: post-neoliberal governments versus the rise of the rights. Hence, the objective of this paper is to characterize the current rights in both countries in what makes the dynamics of agribusiness tending to a comparison with what were the policies implemented during the progressive governments. For such a purpose we resort to a methodological approach of qualitative type based on the bibliographic review specialized in the subject and the analysis of documents. Among the main results, it is noted that although there is a consolidated agribusiness matrix in both countries (and as such it is still preserved in the framework of political alternation); This hegemonic logic of production, however, is deepened with the arrival in the government of Macri (Argentina 2015) and Temer (Brazil 2016). With these governments, state support areas for peasant agriculture are dismantled while stimulating the production of commodities and land grabbing by large landowners.
