The significant rise in the deforestation of the Brazilian Amazon between 2019 and 2022 raised one
of the greatest dilemmas in the international system and potentially one of its most decisive for the
existence of nature in all its biodiversity: ecological intervention when the sovereign State over a
major ecosystem encourages its destruction. For its defenders, it is the guarantee of the right to live.
For its critics, it’s a West-centric new instrument of domination. The case of Brazil under the
mandate of President Jair Bolsonaro is emblematic of this deadlock. Faced with multiple
consequences for living beings, this environmental destruction promoted by the Postcolonial State
and aimed at exports of natural ‘resources’ towards the Global North and China became an issue of
debate at the core of the ratification process debates on the Free-Trade Agreement negotiated
between the European Union and Mercosur. European leaders called for a change on Brazilian State
environmental management through an expansion of European norms. A postcolonial analysis
points towards a meddling between neo-colonial and neo-imperial dimension of the international system principles on the determination of the boundaries of State Sovereignty over Natural ‘Resources’, where ecological intervention is not grounded on protecting the environment, but on legitimizing the expansion of global trade and neo-imperialism.
