The General Law of Culture and Cultural Rights establishes, in accordance with the Political Constitution of Mexico, the mechanisms for the exercise of cultural rights; the bases of coordination between the Federation, federal entities and municipalities in the matter, and the participation of the social sector. Likewise, it grants a general regulatory framework for the institutional cultural work and defines the means that make it possible to enforce the right of access to culture, which has been a constitutional mandate since 2009.
The importance of the General Law of Culture and Cultural Rights lies in the strengthening of cultural institutions, as a necessary step in the historical process of the policies of the Mexican State to promote the cultural development of the country.
