The problem of criminal organizations occupies the epicenter of discussions around the model of criminal law more effective crime prevention and the promotion of new standards for public security and socioeconomic development, able to protect and encourage the model state adopted by Constitution of 1988. In addition to its undisputed social harm, criminal organizations affect the stability of the rule of law and its internal dynamics, and annihilate the guarantees individual rights, suppressing civil liberties and reducing the space of social rights. The mode of transnational organizations attaches to the issue even more complexity because the crime exceeds the limits of the border countries and therefore the judicial power of the nation states, which requires as a cope mechanism more effective agreements between victimized country, proposed that transforms the borders-separation in moderns borders-cooperation, aiming at socio-economic integration.In the history of the problem, there are criminological studies that a haven't been utilized by dogmatic legal criminal, in addition disregarded the political-criminal formulations to prevent criminal organizations. This research turns the integration between these examine criminology, criminal prevention policies and their proper orientation in the management of dogmatic legal criminal, and also discuss comparative in law models, especially in relation to Spanish and German, that affecting more directly the Brazilian experience.Under these theoretical assumptions, the research proposes to examine their reception at the Brazilian legal system, begginnig from the descriptions and critical-reflexives analysis of its principals regulatory mark. The idea is to overcome the state of indeterminacy of the concept of criminal organizations in Brazil, which not only hinder the consolidation of new parameters of public security and development, and also promote situations harshly repressive, highly selective and ineffective for the construction of a model prevention of organized crime.
