Following the process of decentralization of urban policies in Brazil, one can observe the multiplication of channels of social participation in the administration of public policies at a local level. The most significant expressions of this participation are sectorial municipal boards and the processes of participative budgeting. However, in spite of all advancements, there are several obstacles and difficulties for the effective action of such boards and, more generally, of the public democratic sphere. One should here emphasize problems of training and the absence of instruments for the administration and monitoring of public policies.
Trying to contribute to the overcoming of these obstacles, this line of research Aims at (i) the development of activities, studies and recommendations; (ii) the monitoring of public policies ; (iii) the strengthening of national networks and forums for the articulation of social agents; (iv)divulging and consolidating the Observatory of Metropolises as an articulation network between research institutions and non-governmental organizations; (v) the systematic transference to society of research results and (vi) continuing the Interdisciplinary Program of Public Policies and Local Administration: Training Course for Capacitating Social Agents and Local Councilors.
