As an important milestone from the legacy of policies to encourage family farming, the program is mentioned by Schwartzman et al. However, PRONAF reshaped government action in agriculture, since the Brazilian state now formally recognized a specific category of farmers. The definition was later adopted formally in Law 11, of July 24, In the context of the Zero Hunger Program and CONSEA, the support for family farming was seen as a structural policy to promote economic activities on an equitable basis and expand the supply of foods that express dietary cultural diversity and induce competition in markets controlled by large food industries.
Reclaiming the social importance of family farming was essential to development of the focus on food and nutritional security in Brazil, highlighting its productive capacity, since family farming supplies the largest share of the domestic consumer market, despite limited access to land, farm credit, and technical support; preservation of traditional knowledge, local culture, and the potential for sustainable and equitable development.
The promotion of agroecological farming techniques not always used by family farming was prioritized, but from the perspective of a progressive transition that did not override the support for family farming.
Although the initiative to link family farming to government programs through public downloads preceded the CONSEA, and the focus on food and nutritional security reinforces this link in other ways and lends new meanings to it by encouraging awareness of the origin of the foods and the way they are produced, and evidencing how farming practices condition eating practices and affect inequalities.
Thus, the debate on public food downloads was expanded beyond forming regulatory food reserves, including the criteria for choosing suppliers. Since government is a strategic downloader, it can induce new practices and values in the market as well.
From the perspective of food and nutritional security, it matters who one downloads food from, how the food is produced, and to ask: What are the social, economic, political, environmental, cultural, and health repercussion of these different agricultural practices? What kind of development sustainable, inclusive, equitable, or exclusionary do they promote? Which segments of suppliers and consequently what type of development and practices, including eating practices, do the institutional rules and public procurement process favor?
Such questions allowed the concept of adequate and healthy eating to be redefined by CONSEA, associated with all the above-mentioned aspects, and that justified the link between family farming and the National School Feeding Program as provided in the Law.
Accordingly, judges were expected to do no more than to find out or to make plain the meaning of the norm, performing an act of mere knowledge, with no creative liberty at all. Translated by Vittorio Scialoja.
Torino, UTET, Another reason was the strict interpretation of the separation of powers adopted by the Brazilian judiciary. This is illustrated by the fact that, in the first half of the 20th century, it became settled in Brazil that the Brazilian Supreme Court 2 and all other courts should confine themselves to strictly legal issues, shunning, by means of self-restraint, all political matters.
Thus, the positivist outlook of Brazilian judges and courts instituted a separation between the text of the law and its context of application. This trend was compounded by a strictly positivist model in the teaching of law, focused on a narrow, uncritical analysis of statutory law.
In short, the positivist model perpetuates itself both in law schools and in the actual practice of law in Brazil, and is still dominant at the beginning of the 21st century.
Nevertheless, it is possible to assert that the s mark the beginning of a change in conceiving Law.
The positivist approach became the target of severe and sharp criticism. A number of lawyers started to perceive that the positivist method of interpretation both as insufficient and unsatisfactory. The country had already seen seven written and detailed constitutions 3 , yet they all lacked efficacy and effectiveness.
Dominant in Brazil was the European tradition of the first half of the [20th] century, which saw the basic law as a mere coordination of policy programs, a call to action addressed to the legislature and to public officers in general.
Hence, Brazilian constitutional charters have always been inflated by grandiose promises and would-be rights that never found their way into practice: a history marked by insincerity and frustration.
At the present, however, constitutional interpretation affects civil law, criminal law, tax law, procedural law, family law, economic law, etc. Even before the enactment of the Federal Constitution, which included Brazil among democratic countries after twenty-five years of military dictatorship, a number of lawyers had already been concerned with the exam of political and axiological elements in Brazilian law 5.
Such pioneer enterprises opened up new scientific horizons in Brazilian Legal Theory. Thus, books and articles about Topic, The New Rhetoric and Legal Theory of Argumentation gradually gained space in the national legal scene. And the end of military repression as the country was redemocritized has certainly contributed to further such a renovation in Brazilian legal studies.
Many Brazilian lawyers describe the Brazilian Constitution as dirigente directive. This term, taken from Portuguese constitutional law 6 , reflects the inclusion, in the constitutional text, of norms that establish values, ends, policies, and goals for the state and for society in general, especially in the areas of education, culture, health, transport, housing, social welfare, and the realization of social justice as a value.
The problem, recognized even before the Constitution, was not that fundamental rights were not written into the Constitutional text itself — influenced by the Portuguese Constitution and the Spanish Constitution, the Brazilian Constitution contains an extensive bill of individual, social, political, and economical rights.
According to Brazilian lawyers, the problem of constitutional law at the time was the lack of efficacy of constitutional norms, especially of the norms that state fundamental rights. The applicability concept is attached to the eventual need of a legislative activity to enable the achievement of constitutional norms.
Such theoretical trend has been important in that it provided consistent arguments to accord the constitution a greater efficacy, replacing a previous typology which had not assigned any efficacy to certain constitutional norms. For some lawyers the problem could not be reduced to legal efficacy, as a possibility to apply the norm. It was necessary to consider the social efficacy, the possibility of a norm being effectively applied and observed by public officers and citizens.
Effectiveness therefore means the full realization of constitutional norms in their social dimensions. These formal arguments, which are still invoked by some Brazilian Supreme Court Justices, are seen as artifices that favor a minimalist judicial approach.
This approach has been the hallmark of many Brazilian Supreme Court decisions. A reaction to such a minimalism came with the gradual acknowledgement of normative powers in the principles among a number of Brazilian lawyers influenced by Ronald Dworkin 11 and Robert Alexy Since the 20th century last decade, a more active stance has been demanded from the judiciary power, particularly from the Brazilian Supreme Court, still seeking more effectiveness from the constitution.
It is therefore possible to assert that the concern with the effectiveness of the constitution interpretation has evolved in Brazil. Studies by Portuguese lawyers J. Brazilian Constitutionalism therefore has celebrated reconciliation between ethics and law along the last two decades.
Such shared 10 Many cases decided by the Brazilian Supreme Court illustrate this. The most notorious probably involve the interpretation of article , paragraph 3 of the Constitution.

Translated by Julian Rivers. Oxford University Press, Among a number of Brazilian lawyers, the concern with Brazilian society values, which are to be respected and guaranteed by the judiciary, has prompted many lawyers 15 to identify a communitarian theory in Brazil. Justice Hamilton Carvalhido. Justice O. Justice Ruy Rosado de Aguiar. Now, the Brazilian Supreme Court is about to decide whether the principle of human being dignity allows abortion of anencephalic foetuses According to such doctrine, the aim of balancing of values is to see that no restriction to fundamental rights assume disproportionate dimensions.
Since there is not any abstract principle to impose its supremacy over another one, in facing a concrete case, one must make reciprocal concessions, thus producing a socially desirable result, sacrificing a minimum in each of the fundamental rights or principles. The legislator cannot arbitrarily choose one of the interests at stake and render the other void, risking a violation in the constitutional text.
