Abstract

SOUZA, Celina. Public policies: a literature review. Sociologias [online]. 2006, n.16, pp. 20-45. ISSN 1517-4522.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-45222006000200003.

The article presents a review of the main concepts and models for making and assessment of public policies, seeking to synthesize the state of the art in the field, that is, to map how classic and more recent literature approach the subject. The article also seeks to discuss possibilities for application of distinct streams of neo-institutionalist theories to the assessment of public policies.

Keywords : Public policies; Models for Making and Assessment of Public Policies; Neo-Institutionalist Theories.
