    Com base em pesquisa documental, este trabalho apresenta uma caracterização do ciclo de Conferências Nacionais realizadas no governo Lula e analisa as finalidades declaradas pelas mesmas. Constata-se que há outros objetivos além da formulação de propostas para políticas públicas. As conferências também se propuseram a agendar temas, avaliar situações e fortalecer a participação. Nesse sentido, o texto contribui com o entendimento da natureza desses processos participativos, fortalecendo a necessidade de abordagem multidimensional para a avaliação da efetividade das instituições participativas.
