CITIZENSHIP AND INSTITUTIONS IN THE BRAZILIAN NORTH-EAST TERRITORY
The perspective that the problem of differences and the complexity of territory results from the availability and from the quality of the institutions defines a field of geographical research about the nature of the processes that rule the exercise of citizenship. This brings us to the problem of institutions and its territoriality as a conceptual approach. With such a focus, we discuss the possibility of connecting the historical processes of occupation of the northeastern territory, the social actors and the institutions shaped by this process, with some recent vectors of transformation. The objective of this work is to present a discussion, starting with the problematization of differences between ";;new";; and ";;old";; actors and institutions of the Northeast Region, the problem of territoriality and citizenship in the country, incorporating it as a spatial question that can be worked out through geography.
