New book compares anti-corruption rules in BRICS

The FGV´s Sao Paulo Law School and publishing company Editora Juruá have just launched the book “Combating corruption and money laundering in BRICS countries: legal frameworks and institutional arrangements.” Organized by professors Maria Lucia Padua Lima and Paulo Goldschmidt of the FGV´s Sao Paulo Law School, the book is the outcome of extensive research carried out by professors at five academic institutions in the BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.

The research project’s aim was to analyze anti-corruption legislation in each of these countries, showing similarities and differences in the fight against corruption, in terms of internal legal frameworks and international guidelines.

The book organizes legal frameworks and institutional arrangements related to anti-corruption and money laundering measures by country, comparing the legal framework of each jurisdiction with the OECD Anti-Bribery Convention. At the end of each part, there is a special analysis of anti-money laundering regulations, how they are applied and preventive measures.

The book’s authors are professors Abhishek Bharti, Eduard Ivanov, Heloísa Estellita, Jacqueline Yeats, Maria Lucia L. M. Padua Lima, Mariana Tumbiolo Tosi, Paulo Clarindo Goldschmidt, Paulo Dóron Rehder de Araújo, Sufinnah Singlee, Tebello Thabane, Trishna Mohan Kripalani, Vesselin Popovski, Wanderley Fernandes and Zhiyuan Guo.
