“What is the Regional Approach in Brazilian Federal Public Policies?”
Based on the premise that sectoral policies also have an impact on regional development, this lecture will highlight the regional approach to some sectoral policies formulated by the Brazilian Federal Government between 2003 and 2014, including policies related to education, science, technology and innovation, industry, and transportation. I will present a critical analysis of the convergences and divergences between Brazilian federal public policies on regional disparities. I’ll focus specifically on underlying conceptions of the region and the Brazilian Federal Government’s proposals for regional development, including the regional representations they have outlined. My objective is to evaluate if the divergent readings and propositions about regional inequalities found in the Brazilian public policies contribute to uneven geographical development in the country.
