The objective of this research project is to present how will be studied the leisure public policy in the two cities from São Paulo state, Campos do Jordão and Brotas. The research takes for granted that leisure is a multidisciplinary area, as a study field and as in its intervention, and, so, must be planned and implemented in conjunction with other sectors in a municipal level. From the concept of a intersectoral we will check how various departments from both cities implement their leisure policies and if these concepts are used as a guides for public actions. For this purpose it will be prepared, from the methodological point of view semi-structured interviews with administrators and technicians from many departments that offer leisure in the cities (sports, culture and tourism department). The research will yet include observation of programs that tend to use concepts of intersectoral to follow their planning, execution and evaluation. (AU)
