The introductory chapter presents the Brazilian case in the series as a first attempt to understand how the activity of policy analysis has developed in Brazil and how it stands at present. Policy analysis in Brazil can be differentiated from its counterparts in the countries where it originated by its lack of a clearly defined professional activity, specific training or distinctive methods and techniques; however, this has not stopped it developing. With its unique make up, Brazil's vast tradition in the social and human sciences stands as a foundation for the production of analysis oriented towards increasingly multidisciplinary government decision-making. This volume and the studies it presents are a sample of the types of policy analysis being produced in Brazil by different actors and organisations in the various arenas of the policy process.
