CAVALCANTE, Pedro L. C.; LOTTA, Gabriela S.  e  YAMADA, Erika M. K.. Exploring mid-level bureaucracy: a tentative typology. Rev. Bras. Ciênc. Polít. [online]. 2018, n.26, pp.187-222. ISSN 2178-4884.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0103-335220182605.

The paper’s main goal is to present an original typology of bureaucrats, situated in intermediate layer of the civil service structure. This specific set of players, the mid-level bureaucrat (MLB), is seen as a strategic group, primarily, because of its connection role and position between the top officials and the policy executors. Despite their relevance and well-known heterogeneity, few studies have explored this diversity and the effects in the policymaking. In order to fulfill this gap and deepen the understanding of the MLBs, this article proposes a typology that includes crucial dimensions, such as profile, background and performance, and, thus, empirically confirms the heterogeneity assumption in the Brazilian federal civil service.

Palavras-chave : mid-level bureaucrat; typology; policymaking; Brazil.
