Until 2013, Mexico’s energy sector was largely closed to international investment, and the country’s energy policy had a domestic rather than international focus. However, as global energy markets are diversifying, Mexico has begun to reform its energy sector, including its oil, gas and electricity subsidiaries. The Mexico Center focuses on energy reform and its implementation, and the overall impact on Mexico’s energy sector.


Ongoing Research Project

This project focuses on the challenges Mexico faces in implementing energy reforms under the rule of law. It analytically and critically examines some of the key legal aspects of Mexico's new energy sector by drawing on the knowledge of scholars and experts from institutions in the U.S. and Mexico.
