Policy analysis in Brazil

Analysing the think tanks in Brazil, the chapter shows that organisations that in other contexts may perhaps be characterised as think tanks – in that they deal with policy analysis – are not always recognised, nor recognise themselves, as having the role of influencing public policy. Aside from the fact that they are few and recent in Brazil, these institutes were founded by high-ranking technical elites in their fields, which may explain why they set themselves apart from the field of politics, an arena associated with politicians, parties and movements, where interests and ideologies prevail more explicitly than technical solutions based on high expertise.
