MOLANO CRUZ, Giovanni. GLOBAL DRUG GOVERNANCE: RULES DESIGNED TO PROTECT SOME USES AND ELIMINATE OTHERS. anal.polit. [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.95, pp.144-162. ISSN 0121-4705.

The article develops the argument that the global governance of drugs is the result of a social process that, materialized by different actors in multilateral arenas, is not intended to prohibit drugs but to limit their use to medicine and science and to eliminate their offer for any other different use. To this purpose, the author first presents the actors that determined the principles and objectives of international drug law, then demonstrates that the institutional authorities that sustain these norms are spaces for social interaction, and points out the role of Latin America in regulating the repression against illicit uses.

Keywords : international norms; war on drugs; Latin America; political sociology of the international; world governance.
