Much less emphasis is put on domestic processes of policy diffusion and on the incentives politicians have to pursue certain policy models. How do these processes take place within a country? What are the political factors that govern the scaling up of programmes? This chapter helps fill this gap through an analysis of Brazil’s Bolsa Escola programme. Policy ‘lock-in’ A final conceptual point should be made before we proceed. Once in place, a programme creates its own constituency. Public policy is pathdependent: the current portfolio of policies depends very much on the policies of the past.

4 The literature on policy transfer usually discusses the processes of policy ‘bandwagoning’ on an international scale by focusing on the many cases where international institutions play an active role in the dissemination of a policy model or programme (using technical assistance, donations and loans). Other cases examine how ‘implants’ are transferred from one country to another, though the active roles played by certain policy elites, NGO groups and other actors, and in the absence of international multilateral institutions.

This complexity makes the explanatory task more challenging but also more fruitful for developing theory. Further, this is the scale of policymaking which much development debate and intervention envisages, as in the current case of Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers. This view of public policy, therefore, allows us to consider large-scale policy implemented through non-state agents. It is particularly relevant to South Asia, where some NGOs – BRAC, Proshika, the Grameen Bank, Sarvodhya – are operating on the same scale as government ministries.
