Diese Arbeit untersucht zunächst einige wichtige Indikatoren für räumliche Disparitäten und deren Ausprägungen in Brasilien (Kap. 1), bevor im zweiten Kapitel gleichermaßen deren Ursachen und mögliche, gescheiterte oder bereits umgesetzte Lösungsansätze der Regionalplanung und -politik beschrieben werden. Anschließend soll ausführlich anhand zweier Fallbeispiele mit entsprechenden grafischen Darstellungen und Karten aufgezeigt werden, wie vergangene und aktuelle Regierungen Brasiliens gegen Disparitäten vorzugehen versuchen. Das erste Beispiel (Kap. 3.1) stellt mit der Kolonisation Rondônias ein seit über a hundred Jahren anhaltendes Projekt der Integration und Besiedlung Amazoniens dar, während das zweite, der Verkehrskorridor Araguaia – Tocantins (Kap. 3.2), erst durch eine demokratische Regierung in den 1990er Jahren angestoßen wurde und sich deshalb in Vorgehensweise, Laufzeit und Auswirkungen gänzlich vom ersten Beispiel unterscheidet.
