Abstract

Spanish Abstract: Este artículo pretende discutir el papel, en el derecho canónico indiano, de los árbitros, cuya actuación en la resolución de conflictos fue relevante en la tradición católica por lo menos desde los primeros siglos de los cristianos. Examinando los tipos de árbitros que hay, el texto enfatiza la naturaleza consensual de esta actividad, que depende de los acuerdos firmados por las partes y por el propio árbitro. Las capacidades de tornarse un árbitro y de comprometerse con un árbitro son cuestiones relevantes aquí, así como qué temas pueden ser discutidos por un árbitro y los poderes que tenían. Al final, examinamos la decisión del árbitro, el sistema de apelación y la ejecución.

English Abstract: This paper discusses the role of arbiters in the Canon Law of Hispanic America. In the Christian tradition, arbiters have been involved in the resolution of conflicts at least since the early centuries of Christianity. By examining different types of arbiters, the paper emphasizes the consensual nature of such arbitration processes, which required an agreement signed by both parties and the arbiter. We investigate what qualifications were necessary for becoming an arbiter, who was entitled to negotiate with the arbiter, the issues that could be submitted to arbitration, and the extent of arbiters’ competences. We end with an examination of the arbiters’ decisions, of the appeal system and of the processes for enforcement.
