A constitutional reform proposed by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is currently being deliberated in Mexico’s Congress and, if passed, would reverse key parts of the 2014 energy reform that opened the sector to private investment. This could severely impact private investors in energy, thwart climate policy objectives and hinder Mexico’s long-term economic growth. What are the motivations behind the proposal, and what would be the likely legal, political and economic consequences if it is approved? A panel of distinguished experts discussed these and other relevant questions.
