O governo brasileiro favorecendo a participação nas decisões políticas e a descentralização, nomeadamente pela instauração de territórios, a demanda de formações para capacitar os atores faz-se mais necessária. No Nordeste do Brasil, uma Universidade Camponesa foi assim instaurada em 2003, para formar 35 líderes camponêses dentro do território do Cariri paraibano. Antes de difundir esta primeira experiência, uma avaliação das contribuições desta formação ao desenvolvimento do território esta sendo encaminhada. Através da combinação de elementos empíricos, teóricos e metodológicos, sugerimos um quadro de análise bidimensional: a primeira dimensão quer tomar em conta as categorias de competências (capital humano, capital social e capital institucional) e a segunda dimensão permite estudar os momentos do processo de formação. Este quadro é utilizado para apresentar uma primeira série de conclusões relativas à influência da formação no território, nomeadamente o interesse de considerar as redes formados durante a formação. ...English Abstract : As the Brazilian government incentives participation in political decisions and decentralization, in particular by the implementation of territorial policies, the need to capacitate the actors becomes more visible. In the Northeast of Brazil, a Peasant University was thus created in 2003, to train 35 peasant leaders within the Cariri territory. Before disseminating this first experiment, an evaluation of the contributions of this training on the development of the territory is being led. Through the combination of empirical, theoretical and methodological elements, we suggest an analysis framework with two dimensions: the first allows to take into account the different "categories" of competences (human capital, social capital and institutional capital) and the second enables to study the moments of the training process. This framework is used to present a first series of conclusions concerning the impact of the training on the territory, in particular the importance of considering the networks formed during the training.
