Policy analysis in Brazil is part of the International Library of Policy Analysis and is the first book to paint a comprehensive panorama of policy analysis activities in Brazil. Highlighting the unique features of the Brazilian example, it brings together 18 studies by leading Brazilian social scientists on policy analysis as a widespread activity pursued in a variety of policy fields and through different methods by governmental and non-governmental institutions and actors. It shows how policy analysis emerged as part of Brazilian state-building from the 1930s onwards. With the democratisation process of the late 1980s, policy analysis began to include innovative elements of social participation in public management. This unique book offers key insights into the practice of this field and is indispensable reading for scholars, policy makers and students of the social sciences interested in learning how policy analysis developed and functions in Brazil.

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.

The introductory chapter presents the Brazilian case in the series as a first attempt to understand how the activity of policy analysis has developed in Brazil and how it stands at present. Policy analysis in Brazil can be differentiated from its counterparts in the countries where it originated by its lack of a clearly defined professional activity, specific training or distinctive methods and techniques; however, this has not stopped it developing. With its unique make up, Brazil’s vast tradition in the social and human sciences stands as a foundation for the production of analysis oriented towards increasingly multidisciplinary government decision-making. This volume and the studies it presents are a sample of the types of policy analysis being produced in Brazil by different actors and organisations in the various arenas of the policy process.
