Abstract

German Abstract: Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts wurde die lokale Schlichtung von Konflikten in etlichen deutschen Gebieten in einem Umfang praktiziert wie später nie mehr. Das Friedensgericht des Fürstentums Waldeck-Pyrmont (1848-1879) ist – bis auf einige Schiedsmannsorgane um Berlin – die einzige lokale Schlichtungsinstitution, deren Protokollbücher aus jener Zeit heute noch erhalten sind. Anhand dieser Protokolle analysiert der vorliegende Artikel einige typische Fälle aus dem Jahr 1850, um herauszuarbeiten, warum dieses Schlichtungssystem damals so beliebt war, und um vor allem folgende Frage zu beantworten: In welchem Maße wichen die dort angewandten Normen von den Normen des staatlichen Rechts ab?

English Abstract In the middle of the 19th century, local arbitration as a means of conflict resolution was practised in several German territories to an extent that was never seen again later. The Peace Court of the Principality of Waldeck-Pyrmont (1848-1879) is – apart from some arbitration bodies around Berlin – the only local arbitration institution whose protocol books from that period are still available today. On the basis of these protocols, this article analyses some typical cases from 1850 in order to work out why this arbitration system was so popular at that time and, above all, in order to answer the following question: To what extent did the norms applied there deviate from the norms of state law?

Keywords: „dispute resolution“, „use of justice“, arbitration, 19th century, Germany
