In this project we aim to analyze the participation of Investment Funds in public highway concessions in the state of São Paulo. Funds are key players of our period and have expanded the frontiers of financialization. Thus, we propose to better investigate the articulation between these agents and the State, as well as to identify new uses of the territory under the aegis of financial capital. (AU)
