This chapter discusses and aims to provide a general vision of the struggles and organizations of people who are affected by dams in Brazil. It focuses on national cases, although this does not reflect any preferences for national organizations. The chapter presents a summary of the origins of the national movement, a description of the major struggles and demands of the movement on both the local and regional level and on the national level, and focuses on the international relationships of MAB. It ends with a discussion of some specific characteristics of the movement and suggestions for future research.

Keywords:   dams, Brazil, national movement, international relationships, MAB, future research
