On State Paradoxes:
Car Theft and its Formal-Informal Regulations in Brazil

The presentation has two parts:

i) general guidelines issued from field research to understand how car theft in Sao Paulo became, in last 20 years, a transnational market which connects legal-illegal money and formal-informal regulations;

ii) the main analytical (also social and political) consequences for studying the State given this specific standpoint. The research was made with both ethnographic material collected from 2005-2012 in Sao Paulo and official data produced by the Brazilian government and insurance companies in different countries in Latin America.
