This article provides a perspective on two barriers created in the Brazilian legal system that were crucial for the stagnation of arbitration in Brazil. The anti-arbitration measures adopted from 1867 until 1996 were detrimental to the acceptance of arbitration as a common method of solving disputes in Brazil. Although the practice of arbitration in Brazil began while it was still a Portuguese colony, two Decrees enacted in 1867 and 1878 provided a step back into the arbitration scenario. The first determined that the arbitration agreement was a promise to submit disputes to arbitration instead of a contract to have future disputes arbitrated. The second stated that an international arbitral award had to be recognised in the jurisdiction where it was issued before its submission for recognition and enforcement in Brazil. However, Brazil overcame these impediments which, at the end of the last century, were repealed.
