(p.1) Chapter 1 Courts and Public Policy Reform in Brazil
Judging Policy
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the theme of this book, which is about the role of the courts in public policy reform in Brazil. The book, which proposes a framework for understanding how courts are drawn into the policy game and how policy players use them to advance their strategic political objectives, attempts to integrate the courts into the body of existing research in comparative political science on political institutions and policy outcomes in Brazil. It also highlights the role of policy salience, political environment, and the judicial institutional environment in determining which public policies actually have their day in court.

Keywords:   courts, public policy reform, Brazil, policy players, policy salience, political environment, judicial institutions
