The International Human Trafficking handles every year, around U.S. $ 32 billion, according to estimates of the United Nations (UN), thus setting the third most profitable criminal activity in the world, only behind drug trafficking and smuggling weapons. Thus, this same international organization adopted, at the beginning of the XXI century, the Palermo Convention with the aim of promoting cooperation among countries around the world to prevent and combat this illegal practice.I propose to conduct a comparative study on the major changes provoked by this Convention, and other international treaties, on national criminal laws in Brazil and selected countries in Latin America, describing the extent to which there was influence of international guidelines on public security policies, in particular in counter trafficking in persons, within each domestic selected nation. The presented hypothesis is that with the international regulatory milestone that was the Palermo Convention, the UN managed to forge changes in domestic legal standards of many nations, among them Brazil and neighboring countries in Latin America.
