Abstract

History, sociology, anthropology and law currently study the impact of human practices on social, economic and environmental contexts, among others. Within this context, the aim of this article is to analyze the institutionalization of human rights in Brazilian law to provide adequate food as a category of fundamental social rights, in opposition to it as a commodity in the Brazilian Legal Amazon Region. The special aims of this research are to: (i) briefly outline the general characteristics of fundamental rights and to present notes on Brazilian Law; and (ii) characterize the evolution of the right to adequate food as a category of fundamental social rights in Brazil, as well as its impact in the Brazilian Legal Amazon Region due to its importance as an agricultural territory. The methodology approaches used to achieve the desired objectives in this research are the "state of the art," and theoretical and secondary data from official websites.

Keywords: Commodity. Economic Development. Social Fundamental Rights.

JEL Classification: A13
