LOPEZ-SANTAMARIA, Ramsés. Recognition of the rights of the slave community located in the Colombian Pacific (1800-1851). Rev. Derecho Estado [online]. 2019, n.43, pp.265-289. ISSN 0122-9893.

The purpose of this article is to present the documentary and contextual review of the recognition of rights in relation to minority groups, especially as the main object of the present investigation of the enslaved Afro-descendant community located in the Colombian Pacific between the years 1800 and 1851. The historical and legal study of the recognition of the freedom of slaves, in the light of a very specific period of time in the context of New Granada and of the right of access to property in the difficult tension that arose between the various groups of power that confronted the design authority of the new State model for Colombia at the beginning of the 19th century, is the driving line of this article. It is also the result of a review on the state of the matter that aims to motivate the generation of new research on the recognition of rights in favor of a social group who were not allowed to easily access their freedom and access of private property, using for this particular work the reference of primary sources (judicial files) existing in the Central Archive of Cauca.
