This research intends to analyze the model adopted in the construction of community advisory committees. The empirical object is the
Community Advisory Committee of Camaçari Complex (BA), the first one to be set up in the country and that has been used as a reference for
the implementation of others. Participant observation and seventeen interviews were the main sources of data. The advisory committee constitutes itself in a sophisticated mechanism of docilization
and responsabilization for the spread of an organizational hegemonic ideology and neoliberal modes of governance.
