Right of access to information in Mexico: a diagnosis by society

Right of access to information in Mexico: a diagnosis by society

Since its origins, the Federal Institute of Access to Public Information responded to a rightful claim from Mexican society, who demanded to guarantee a transparent office from the government, subject to social supervision, open to accountability and allowing public issues to be publicly available. In this sense, the more than 40 thousand information petitions processed in only one year can prove that the creation of mechanisms and institutions intended to protect the right of access to government public information has been an accomplishment, a positive response to an authentic social need.

This is a double need: on one hand, it is intended that the information flows “downstream” so that the citizens can know, evaluate, and supervise all actions taken by officers and rulers so that some sort of social control is daily exercised “upstream” towards every single location of the Federal Public Administration.

But in the other hand, it is intended that the information provided by the government is also useful and meaningful for society itself; that all data, figures, and accessible documents result in an increased capacity of action and proposal by individuals and social organizations.https://home.inai.org.mx/wp-content/documentos/Publicaciones/Documentos/right_access17.pdf
