Most of the issues raised in the present
research programme demand a long-haul perspective and contributions from different fields of knowledge. Our first challenges will be to establish consensus among the different disciplines represented in the Centre about this terms. The project is an innovative proposal in the Southern hemisphere and will focus on the situation in Brazil, but international comparisons will be explored when possible.
