Abstract: The public and private institutional dynamics in the process of developing territories impacted by large hydroelectric projects have faced challenges over time in different aspects. The challenge is not only how to build participatory governance at different levels, but how to promote democratic and responsible vertical conceptions among actors at each level, considering the sharing of irreversible socioeconomic impacts caused by this enterprises in the Amazon. The construction of new relations between ordinary people and institutions - government, companies, society - forces the constant search for the establishment of strategies to establish social relations for the construction of models of territorial governance still in initial experiences in the state of Pará. To identify impacts, conflicts and territorial governance in areas of major projects: what has literature shown of experiences in the Amazon?
