A Que Vieram as Conferências Nacionais? Uma Análise dos Objetivos dos Processos Realizados Entre 2003 e 2010


  • Clóvis Henrique Leite de Souza


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. Palavras-chave: conferências, democracia participativa, efetividade, instituições participativas, participação Based on documentary research, this paper presents a characterization of national conferences held during President Lula?s government and analyzes their purposes.

Keywords: conferences, participatory democracy, effectiveness, participatory institutions, social participation.
