FOI Weak in Most Mexican States, Fundar Reports

2 May 2014

A new report on state freedom of information laws in Mexico delves into the quality of the 32 state laws, finding more than half of them deficient.

The detailed index by the nongovernmental organization Fundar looks at three main categories: regulatory provisions, institutional design and the process to access public information.

Of the 32 states, 19 were rated poor and 13 were average.

The index “shows exactly where the laws are failing to protect and guarantee the right to access to information,” according to a press release on what is the second edition of its Right to Access Information Index (IDAIM for its Spanish acronym).

The IDAIM measures the quality of the transparency laws comparing them with international laws and best practices.
