Abstract
Worldwide illegal drug trafficking has been constantly increasing. Many countries believe
that drug crimes need a special penalization to give a deterrent effect to the perpetrators,
one of which is in the form of capital punishment. Indonesia is one of the countries that
has been placing death penalty to the drug users as well as the traffickers. This widely
controversial approach has been equally applied to many offenders regardless of their
origins; locals and foreigners, including recently to the Brazilian drug traffickers. This
research discusses the influence of Indonesian death penalty policy to the Brazilians drug
traffickers and how it effects the relations of Indonesia and Brazil. This study found that
the death sentence policy in Indonesia has made quite an impact to the bilateral relations of
Brazil and Indonesia, where it particularly affects several aspects of economy, military,
and especially political relations of the two countries. This research is carried out by using
descriptive-explanative and qualitative method, focusing on the process and the actual
event of the case gathered from a number of sources and data. This study incorporates the
framework of rational choice theory of the decision making policy as the conceptual basis
of the research.
Keywords: Indonesian drug trafficking, capital punishment, Indonesia – Brazil bilateral relations, rational choice theory, Jokowi
