The policy of the rights of the government of Mexico City
This text deals with the analysis of the policy of the rights of the government of Mexico City which took place during the last three administrations. This government is considered as an institution identified with the political left of the country since it bases its government strategy on two core pillars: the democratization of the government and the design of new redistributive policies, mainly the social policy. With these referents, an analysis is made with the most important political guidelines, which characterized this policy since 1997. Thus a process of continuity is identified in the three administrations in which consecutively the political, social, civil and “collective” rights were introduced. It is analyzed in each case the specific policies which made valid these rights and it is emphasized the different limitations related to those policies. Finally, we highlight the difficulties and contradictions that these governments have faced due to the fact that it is a policy put into practice in the framework of an urban development deep inside neoliberal policies and the global economy rules.
