Chapter 5: The Brazil–Mozambique experience in rural development: bringing conflict back into transfer studies
Several rural public policies formulated and implemented in Brazil have achieved international attention, inspiring a number of cooperation projects. Exploring Brazil’s relations with Mozambique as a case study, this chapter analyzes the role of different policy coalitions in the transfer of conflicting models of rural development. In order to understand how policy instruments developed in Brazil are shared with and transformed by international and Mozambican actors, the chapter relies on the Advocacy Coalition Framework and on the notion of ‘translation’. The process described strengthens specific domestic actors and triggers a redistribution of political resources as a result of the interactions of domestic coalitions with international actors. Keywords: South–South cooperation, advocacy coalition framework, translation sociology, rural policies, Brazil, Mozambique
