These lines will be superimposed on the formation of these large areas. On the interpretation of these facts, one has as a goal to understand spatial systems logic within Travassos and geopolitical perspectives, considering the axes of Integration and Development EIDs in Northern Frontier inside current Brazilian Geopolitics Perspectives. Therefore, understanding the Amazon key role in the geopolitical scenario correlate and interpreting the constitution of borders and territorial policies of Travassos’ EID theory with a current perspective and at the same time, demonstrate the current geopolitical framework of the northern border and the pursuit of global projections of the country and at the same time understanding geopolitical functioning of the South American subcontinent. The methodology was based on an interpretive view of the facts and arguments made by reflections of the Research Group Geographical Studies (GPEG) and the literature review in the final results revolves around of Brazilian government rise and strategy based on geographical systems of Travassos’ theory.
