Policymaking in a Redemocratized Brazil Volume 2: Public Policy and Social Exclusion, PRP 119
Wilson, Robert H.
LBJ School of Public Affairs
The three PRPs discussed in this two-volume report addressed public policymaking in Brazil, examining issues of governance and intergovernmental relations, administrative and political structures, and capacities of federal, state, and local governmental agencies in various social policy arenas. The project was sponsored by the Ford Foundation, the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs, and the Institute of Latin American Studies. CEBRAP, a prominent social science research institute in Sao Paulo, has been a partner on several segments of the project. Over the past three years, teaching responsibilities were shared by Professor Robert H. Wilson of the LBJ School, Professor Vilmar Faria of Universidade de Campinas, and Professor Lawrence Graham of the Department of Government and the Brazil Center at The University of Texas at Austin. The PRPs involved 61 students, including 15 representatives of Brazilian nongovernmental organizations. By the conclusion of the project, 23 students from The University of Texas had conducted fieldwork in Brazil.
