MIRANDA, Humberto  and  GOMES JUNIOR, Evaldo. Urbanização reflexa: a emergência de arranjos urbanos intermediários no Brasil pós-1990. EURE (Santiago) [online]. 2017, vol.43, n.130, pp.207-234. ISSN 0250-7161.

This article analyzes the role of intermediate sized cities among the other urban scales in Brazil. These scales modify the urban hierarchies in underdeveloped nations. After the 1990s, the form of coordination between urban, rural and regional changed the pattern of Brazilian urbanization. However, investments in logistics infrastructure and the technical processes of economic modernization, penetrated in the expansion areas of the agro-export frontier and intensified the pace of urbanization in non-metropolitan areas, making way for reflex urbanization.

Keywords : urbanization; intermediate cities; territorial restructuring.
