Abstract

RIOS ZAMUDIO, Juana Luisa. Indigenous Mayan justice in the Southeast of Mexico. Rev. Derecho [online]. 2011, n.35, pp. 180-219. ISSN 0121-8697.

The Indigenous Justice System of Quintana Roo, was created and implemented by the local government more than ten years ago, and it has not been sufficiently investigated. The aim of this paper is to analyze its performance from the legal sociology point of view , using the law reports of the traditional judges. Today, and thanks to their actions, the Mayan traditional judges are socially legitimized into the indigenous communities, although they were created "from the outside of the communities" by state authorities a little bit more than a decade ago.

Keywords : Indigenous justice; traditional judges; Mayans of Quintana Roo.
