Author: De Souza D.B.

Abstract: This study aims to reflect on social participation's issue, in general, in the Councils of Environment (CE) and, in particular, at municipal level, taking on theoretical-conceptual basis the critical discussion around the conceptions of sustainability and social participation present on the agenda of some environmental international conferences. From this, the analysis turns to some results of empirical-theoretical researches that deal with the social participation in the processes of creation, implementation and/or institutional and political functioning of CE in the country, revealing that these studies expose, on one side, in reduced number, some discredit in relation to the democratic character attributed to the operation of those councils in the country, expression, in particular, of the absence of an effective social e political participation, while a second group of studies, in a greater number, turns out to highlight the essential or potentially democratic dimension of these collegiate organisms, in a large sense reflecting the dominant discourse, as well as in respect to the development-sustainability relation.
