This chapter discusses the protection of constitutional rights in Mexico, focusing on a peculiar name for the rights of individuals which emerged during the historical development of the Mexican Constitution: garantías individuales. The term garantías individuales or ‘individual guarantees’ reflects the effort to consider work, health, housing, and land as rights guaranteed to the individual by the Mexican Constitution in order for society to achieve a fairer distribution of wealth. In this chapter, garantías individuales is referred to as ‘constitutional protections’, ‘constitutional rights and liberties or freedoms’, or ‘civil rights and liberties’, with the caveat that these English language renditions are to be understood from an entirely different perspective than their meanings imply at the present time in the context of US constitutional law.

Keywords:   constitutional rights, garantías individuales, individual guarantees, Mexican Constitution, constitutional protections, liberties, freedoms, civil rights
