FUENTE CARRASCO, Mario E.  y  BARKIN P., David. Forest Concessions, Exclusion and Sustainability: Lessons from the Communities of the Sierra Norte de Oaxaca. Desacatos [online]. 2011, n.37, pp. 93-110. ISSN 1607-050X.

Community efforts to overcome distributive economic conflicts are a way to challenge directly processes of social exclusion. These practices are specific examples of a concrete ethos. Peasants from the Sierra Norte in Oaxaca were excluded by the award of concessions to exploit the forests to private companies. The analysis examines the lessons learned and their application in subsequent efforts to transform the social appropriation of nature into a process that is both socially and environmentally responsible; these efforts also became a strategy for escaping from a new dependency on the globalized market.

Palabras llave : communality; sustainability; distributive conflicts; concessions; rural praxis.
