This book aims to address the concept of corruption and the fight against it through different perspectives that normally, mainly in Brazilian publications, do not talk to each other. It is a book that was created after I attended the renowned Transparency International School on Integrity (TISI) for young leaders, in Vilnius, Lithuania, in 2019 and met incredible people from around the world, all engaged in the anti-corruption fight and democracy strengthening.
Thus, the aim of this book was to bring as much variety as possible to the ways of thinking about the effects of corruption and how to fight it in different countries, aiming that the reader can carry out the necessary critical comparisons to comprehend how corruption can be thought of as a global problem, but as one that often presents unique characteristics in different parts of the world and sectors of the State (public and private). Since this book was aimed mainly at the Brazilian public, being myself from this country, I was lucky to have also the contribution of Brazilian professors, researchers and civil society actors.
This is a very rich book in terms of analyzed materials, with precious analyzes on the most varied topics within the spectrum of corruption and different ways of combating it, being essential for beginners and initiates in the study of these themes.
