IFAI Seeks Public Input on Participatory Governance

30 April 2015

Mexico’s Federal Institute for Access to Information and Data Protection (IFAI) has called for advice on how the government can be not only more open, but more collaborative with citizens.

IFAI’s mandate includes more than implementing the freedom of information law and extends to promoting citizen participation, according to the April 27 announcement (in Spanish).

With the goal of designing a “Model Open Government” to empower citizens, IFAI says it aims to improve the capacities of both institutions and civil society to identify, publish and disseminate public information and useful knowledge and to establish principles of collaboration and co-creation between authorities and citizens.

The Open Government Model will lay a foundation of minimum attributes for public institutions. It consists of six key components: access to information, proactive transparency, accountability, citizen participation, co-creation, and innovation.
