Back in Pará

February 23, 2024

The beginning of the year started with a return to the Amazon region to follow on from past projects. After eight years I was back in the region I had travelled so extensively between 2000 and 2007 when working with Anti-Slavery International on a different mission. Now I was back to continue to work in line with my ongoing research about the socio-psychological impact of culture. My goal was to work on a new study aobut life-style of the settlers who have come to the region to have access to land and to live off family farming, to visit some of the cities in the area and to observe other emerging trends. Given that I have worked in the Pará over many years, it was interesting for me to observe how the region had developed, what had changed and what remained the same. Working again with the Pastoral Land Commission, we visted several settlements and cities in the South of Pará and I could gained a good understanding of trends and changes.
