Coordenadores/Principal Investigator: 

Inter-American Development Bank


The research advanced here aims at identifying the state capacities which buttress public policies intended to generate aggregate value both in the agropecuary and industrial sectors of strategic nature in Brazil, and in the sector of regulation of telecommunications. In order to accomplish this goal, we studied the changes within specific sector policies, along with diversions in the systemic policies of public management occurring in the last decade, the repercussions of which fall upon the policies under analysis. The investigation proposed here concentrates on analyzing the evolution of the federal state capacities- static and dynamic- used for the regulatory activities in the area of telecommunications and in fostering the process of generation of aggregate value in the agropecuary and industrial sectors. In this sense, the main focuses of interest of the study are finalistic policies- regulation and industrial and agropecuary development – and the secondary focus, a systemic policy – public management. These policies- developmentalist, regulatory and of public management have been assigned a second rank in the recent evolution of the country, vis-à-vis the centrality of macroeconomic policies of liberal bias, which emphasize the management of inflationary, exchange, fiscal and monetary variables. But significant changes occurred during the period, even if characterized by fragmentation, discontinuity and disarticulation. The investigation put forth shall individualize these changes and analyze their causes and meanings
