SILVA, Rogério Bezerra da  and  DAGNINO, Renato. Policy analysis approach for the study of public policy on the high tech industrial park of Campinas. Rev. Sociol. Polit. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.40, pp.171-194. ISSN 1678-9873.

This article analyzes public policy on the High Tech Industrial Park of Campinas which, following the guidelines of Brazilian scientific and technological policy, has been elaborated over the course of the last three decades. For these purposes, we use the Policy Analysis Approach. It not only requires comparison of policy goals and the results obtained through their implementation, but also seeks to explain obstacles to reaching goals by examination of policies from the first moments of their formulation. That is, analysis of the decision-making process, political projects and cognitive models of the actors involved. The analysis we carry out shows that three decades after the initiation of this particular public policy, only modest results have been achieved. The explanation for this may reside in the fact that it attempted to emulate experiences originating in advanced capitalist countries, on the initiative of members of the national research community.

Keywords : Policy Analysis Approach; public policies; High Tech Industrial Park of Campinas.
