In this chapter, the professionalization of policy analysis is examined as a process spanning through different political regimes since 1930, which is a mark of state modernization in Brazil. Policy analysis was built initially within structures internal to the State that were both vertical and insulated as part of the development of the State bureaucracy and the technical and intellectual elites. From the 1930s to the 1980s, these were predominantly groups or commissions convened by governments and comprising economists, administrators and sectoral academic specialists. From the mid-1980s onwards, re-democratisation and the entry of new actors into policy sectors functionally external to the State became part of the regular dynamics of government activity and of policymaking processes and arenas through horizontalised structures and including larger numbers of policy analysis actors, styles and activities as part of policy making.
