All rights reserved.The present paper seeks to analyze treaties and national laws aimed at protecting victims and criminalizing the perpetrators on the topics of international drug trafficking and trafficking in persons, as well as highlight the gender vulnerability existing in both scenarios. Thus, it addresses the aspects of human rights, globalization and epistemologies of the South to show how the crimes are being discussed in Brazil. In order to examine the situation of women who are victims of the international drug trafficking as mules, Resolution 52/1 of the United Nations will be studied to put in evidence the gender issue, demonstrating that the involvement of women in trafficking points to their vulnerability. In addition, with regard to human trafficking, the role of the Palermo Protocol, ratified by the Brazilian Government in 2004, should be analyzed and explained. As a complement, information will be presented on the topics provided mainly by the Brazilian Government and other national authorities responsible to the theme. In the international level, the United Nations normative will be studied, with special focus on the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the International Labor Organization (ILO), as well as representatives of national and international third sectors organizations, such as the Brazilian Association for the Defense of Women in Childhood and Youth (ASBRAD). In order to achieve the abovementioned results, documentary and bibliographic research with a descriptive character will be made, combined with the use of the inductive method for its main conclusions.
