dc.description.abstractThis report, Between the Law and their Land, illuminates the current situation of Brazil’s quilombo communities and their struggle for land rights. It first discusses the historical and social context of quilombo communities’ struggle for recognition. Second, it examines the legal processes by which land rights are obtained and analyzes the various obstacles faced by quilombos to achieving meaningful rights. Finally, the report concludes by offering several recommendations for improving the titling process for quilombos and for reversing the precarious economic and social position of their inhabitants, or quilombolas.en
