Policy analysis in Brazil

The styles and methods employed by the new actors incorporated by the participatory design of policymaking after 1988 in Brazil express the political, social and academic trajectory traced by policy analysis in the country. The chapter analyses the methodological diversity of the analyses that predominate in Brazil. The author constructs a typology by style (economic and socio-political) and scope (macro or micro-analytical) and shows that the economic dimension was prioritised by the state and peopled by economists and developed more in the rational style and devoted itself to forming and developing its technical elite. Social concerns, meanwhile, have come to policy analysis more recently in a process directed more from society to the state. The more participatory and deliberative policymaking of the post-1988 period includes styles suited to contemporary forms of governance in democratic states.
