The chapter offers a conceptual discussion of policy analysis in Brazil in the light of increasing activity by social movements since re-democratisation. Advocacy practices have come to the fore especially among diversity groups representing women, black people and gay people. These movements, while voicing the demands of vulnerable groups, have appropriated studies and analyses, some with a high degree of expertise, in order to argue their ideas in the political process and have come to be acknowledged as strategic actors. Their instrumental use of analyses was directed initially to organising arguments in support of their efforts to gain recognition and then to producing change: to having their issues recognised as belonging on the state agenda and deserving of access to redistributive government funding and coverage by rights protection legislation.
