Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to provide an analysis of how agrofuel discourses inArgentina represent particular economic and political interests. The chosen period (2007-2010)obeys to the fact that 2007 was the year where the law for Promotion of Sustainable Agrofuelwas enforced.The methodological approach of the thesis suggests that discourses represent a systematicway of ordering meanings, practices and knowledge. What can be understood from this studyis that the interest shown on agrofuels lies ultimately not in the care of the environment, butrather to generate agri-industrial production centers that can give added value to rawmaterials for export.
