Summary/Abstract: : Proceeding from the view that shady economic practices are specific forms of deviant behaviour motivated by economic objectives, the article presents some of the leading theories and concepts of social deviation, and discusses them in their application to the origin of shadow economy practices, seen as socio–economic activities that are legally authorized but in intentional viola-tion of the legal framework and economic regulations. By theorizing shady practices in the wider perspective of the concepts of social deviations (behav-iours that deviate from the norms of a given society at a given time), the authors are able to take the study beyond the purely economic mechanisms and reveal elements in the genesis and reproduction of shady practices that are common to most deviations, as well as elements specific to the analysed phenomenon
