ABSTRACT
This article explores the paradox of normative and institutional advances vis-a-vis political and practical failures through the analytical lens of an ongoing dispute between three different projects of transparency: the "bureaucratic", "public relations" and "democratic-expansive" approaches. The reason why Mexico has failed to fulfill the promise of its institutional reforms is because the two first understandings have predominated. Mexico, and other countries like it, need to move beyond such superficial, one-sided approaches to fully embrace the third understanding of transparency as an eminently "political" project involving the expansion of democracy itself.
