Policy analysis in Brazil

Production of systematic policy analyses and monitoring of strategic indicators for the industrial sector and public policy sector form the subject matter considered in this chapter in terms of the dynamics of business and industrial associations (particularly in the Rio de Janeiro-São Paulo area) and of semi-public corporative associations in the main sectors of the economy. It shows that, accompanying Brazil's re-democratisation, the focus of interest mediation has migrated, in significant measure at least, from the Executive to the Legislative in a movement associated with increasingly professional lobbying activities. The study reveals a high degree of complexity in policy tracking and analysis, with internal specialisation tailored to monitoring policies of interest to specific industrial sectors. In a context of re-democratisation, the conjunctural conditions affording access to the apparatus of State and the increasing availability of information from public agencies, as well as globalisation, have been important factors in strengthening these organisations’ capacity for analysis. This has affected the pattern of industrial organisations’ activities and their political agenda and has altered the traditional corporative arrangement inherited from the 1930s.
