Corrupción y administración pública en brasil

Corruption and public administration in Brazil

  • Daniel Wunder Hachem
  • Emerson Gabardo


The paper begins by describing the legal regime that regulates the fight against corruption in Brazil  based on an extensive list of statutes and norms applicable to the subject.
Subsequently, it elaborates a historical and critical exposition of patrimonialism as the basis of the construction of public and private relations far from ethics based on the public interest. It also highlights, from a sociological point of view, the problems of the reality that trusts in a symbolic combat to the corruption, through  an abusive behavior of the controlling agents, although strongly supported by the public opinion. Then, it provides an analysis of the organs and entities of the Brazilian Public Administration based on a critical vision of its action, however, emphasizing the existence of a common constitutional nucleus of principles of sanctioning law related to the illegal activities of public agents.

Keywords: State corruption; Public administration; Public ethics; Public agents; Administrative sanctions.
