    O quadro legal e institucional, construído historicamente, que regulamenta a propriedade e a posse da terra no Brasil tem sido responsável por vários tipos de problemas fundiários no país que vão desde os conflitos de terras rurais, a ausência de moradias urbanas, as ocupações de terras rurais e urbanas (por alguns, chamadas de invasões), o desmatamento das florestas tropicais, a grande concen- tração da terra tanto rural quanto urbana à insegurança jurídica da terra em geral.
