The rule of Law and energy reform

Tony Payan

The rule of Law and energy reform.

The implementation of Mexico’s new energy legislation has been problematic, fueling continued debate on how the reforms are, or are not, enforced. This book, written in Spanish, is the culmination of a major research effort to examine rule of law issues arising under the reforms. The project is a collaboration between the Baker Institute’s Mexico Center and the Center for U.S. and Mexican Law at the University of Houston Law Center, in association with the School of Government and Public Transformation of the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey, the Centro de Investigación para el Desarrollo A.C. (CIDAC), and the Faculty of Law and Criminology at the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León.

The book, "Estado de Derecho y Reforma Energética en México" ("The rule of law and Mexico's energy reform"), is available for purchase here: http://www.tirant.com/mex/libro/estado-de-derecho-y-reforma-energetica-en-mexico-tony-payan-9788491432814?busqueda=energetica&
