ANALYSIS OF CHILEAN CASE LAW ON THE RECOGNITION AND ENFORCEMENT OF FOREIGNARBITRAL AWARDS
ABSTRACT: Chilean law has been supportive of arbitration as a dispute resolution mechanism. Law No. 19,971 of 2004 extended such support to international arbitration and introduced a clear pro-enforcement bias in favour of foreign arbitral awards. However, court decisions remain rooted in requirements and analysis that are inconsistent with Law No. 19,971 of 2004 and applicable international treaties, which may affect the Chilean pro-arbitration profile.
