Fabiano Angélico


Fabiano Angélico is a postdoc researcher at the GRIP (Public Integrity Research Group) at the Università della Svizzera italiana (USI). He holds a Ph.D. in Communication Sciences from USI and in Public Administration from the Business Administration School of São Paulo at the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV/EAESP) in Brazil. He also holds an M.Sc. in Public Administration and Government from the FGV/EAESP and a BA in Journalism from the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil). In addition, he took post-graduation studies in Law from the University of Chile.

His research focuses on governance-related issues: open data, transparency, open government, accountability, anti-corruption, and anti-money laundering. He is particularly interested in the potential and limitations of open data and social accountability in countering corruption and money laundering. He also analyses the impact of grand corruption and money laundering, focusing on asset recovery and social reparations.

Before joining USI, Angélico worked at São Paulo City Hall in Brazil and provided consultancy services to different international non-profits (Transparency International, Global Integrity, CiFAR - Civil Forum for Asset Recovery) and multilateral organizations, such as the World Bank, UNODC, UNDP, UNESCO and EUROsociAL (program for cooperation between the European Union and Latin America).
