    Este trabalho visa discutir, de forma teórica e preliminar, aquelas que seriam as principais características e dificuldades do conceito de Estado desenvolvimentista (ED). Para isso serão discutidas duas questões fundamentais para a adequada compreensão do conceito: i) os objetivos que caracterizam um ED - em outras palavras, que tipo de desenvolvimento busca um ED?; e ii) quais meios institucionais (atuação indireta sobre o ambiente institucional, ou intervenção direta sobre arranjos institucionais específicos) são usualmente empregados por um ED? Adicionalmente, faz-se breve revisão de algumas questões correlatas ao tema. Palavras-chave: Estado desenvolvimentista, Desenvolvimento, Instituições. This paper aims to consider theoretically and in a preliminary way the most important features and problems concerning the concept of Developmental State, discussing the two issues that would be fundamental for its proper comprehension: (1) the issue about the objectives which characterize a Developmental State, i.e., what kind of development is aimed by a Developmental State?; and (2) which institutional means are usually employed by a Developmental State: the indirect promotion of development through the institutional environment or the direct intervention in particular institutional arrangements? Additionally, some related issues concerning the concept of Developmental State are briefly reviewed.
