Levando a Sério o Que Nos Dizem - Notas Sobre Narrativas e Avaliação Nas Políticas Públicas


  • Luiz Eduardo Abreu

O texto examina a aplicação do conceito de narrativas para a avaliação de políticas públicas. Para tanto, utiliza como exemplo a pesquisa sobre o programa Mais Cultura, realizada pelo Ipea. Palavras-chave: Narrativas, discursos, institucionalismo discursivo, neo-institucionalismo, políticas públicas. Public policy studies in Brazil strongly rely on sociological, historical or rational choice neo-institutionalisms. A forth "newest new institutionalism" argues that ideas and discourse matter, meaning they play a paramount role in politics. The concept of narratives may provide insights into the daily routine of public institutions that remain unperceived by "older new-institutionalisms". It also helps to develop one`s sensibility to what people say into a more conspicuous representation of what that really means. Numbers, norms, and official or unofficial discourses only make sense as parts of broader, although unsettled narratives. Keywords: Narratives, discourse, discursive institucionalism, new institucionalism, public policies.
