RESENDE, Roberta Carnelos  e  AMARAL, Igor. Legislative behavior and electoral financing: the samarco disaster case. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2019, vol.19, n.spe, pp. 44-61. ISSN 2175-1390.

This research focuses on the occurrence of socio-environmental disasters, which are closely related to administrative decisions and the prioritization of economic and financial results made by decision makers of large companies. The purpose of the paper is to analyze the behavior of state representatives of Espírito Santo in a critical moment, namely the Mariana dam disaster, caused by Samarco / Vale / BHP. Specifically, it seeks to present an overview of legislative production, and to observe how the behavior of these parliamentarians may be associated with campaign donations made by the business group that caused the disaster. We analyzed the 25 propositions presented by the deputies about the case under analysis, between 2015 and 2019. The results suggest a relationship between legislative behavior and campaign financing. The funded politicians sought, above all, to interrupt the investigations and to request the return of Samarco's activities.

Palavras-chave : Legislative behavior; Electoral financing; Legislative Assembly of Espírito Santo; Mariana's disaster; Samarco.
