The Right to Information in Latin America

By Toby Mendel - 2009

This report, written by Toby Mendel (senior legal counsel at ARTICLE 19) and published by UNESCO, surveys the relatively recent right to information laws in place in 11 Latin American countries, including Chile, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Uruguay.Making legal language accessible, the study provides a reading-between-the-lines perspective that highlights both the exemplary aspects of the laws, as well as the areas that require amendments or additions to ensure public interest is prioritised above the interests of governments and corporations.
