The collected volume is the result of the binational research project “Organizational Crime and Systemic Corruption in Brazil”, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo (FAPESP), which began in 2018. Carried out in cooperation between the University of Heidelberg, University of Sao Paulo (USP), Federal University of ABC (UFABC) and Federal University of Paraná (UFPR), the collaboration engaged several scholars from a range of disciplines. The book examines and explains the interplay between the public and private sectors, zooming in on the Brazilian case since the return of democracy, but particularly in the last decade, with Operation Car Wash. Campaign finance, influence peddling, conflict of interest, occultation and concealment of assets, judicial corruption are discussed to illustrate that studying such a complex and multicausal phenomenon requires both methodological and analytical tools.
