RIBEIRO, Natalina e RAICHELIS, Raquel. Reexamining the international agencies influences in the origin of the public-policy councils. Serv. Soc. Soc. [online]. 2012, n.109, pp.45-67. ISSN 0101-6628. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-66282012000100004.
This article aims at deepening the debate on the influence of international agencies in the processes that gave rise to the councils of public policies as institutional channels of participation in Brazil. It focuses on the intense international activity at the end of World War II and the creation of multilateral institutions. It contemplates the international agencies'role in the field of health policies in Brazil, and it seeks to reconstruct the guidelines that focused on the stimulation of participatory strategies that led to the creation of health councils, which were the first reference for other areas to implement their decentralized and participatory systems.
