As no specific training in policy analysis has developed in Brazil, the chapter discusses instruction in the public policy field and the contribution of postgraduate education to preparing policy analysts. Political and policy analyses first related to subjects dear to Brazil's intelligentsia in the 20th century, when intellectuals and academics from various fields applied themselves basically to studying the State and the patterns of its development. Drawing a distinction between ‘instruction’ and ‘training’, the authors show that instruction forms part of the policy analyst's training, although that training is not restricted to academic instruction, but also incorporates professional practice.
