Addressing Emerging Challenges on Access to Information in the Inter-American Human Rights System
Centro de Archivos y Acceso a la Información Pública (CAinfo) is writing two regional reports that will contribute to an understanding of the challenges to access to information in Latin America. The first report looks at the current institutional framework, including oversight bodies, implementation units, and legal regulations of access to information regimes in the region. The second report is a more detailed analysis of the current state of implementation of the right to information in seven Latin American countries.
