State-building, the Modernization of the Legal System, and Institutional Effectiveness in Mexico: Notes on the 2013–2014 Energy Reform.

By Héctor Fix-Fierro

Nobody can ensure that the economic gamble underlying the 2013–2014 energy reform will achieve the desired or expected success. However, the author presents evidence demonstrating that Mexico has gradually been building the institutions that will be able to perform governmental operations with reasonable effectiveness.

This paper is part of a Baker Institute Mexico Center research project examining the rule of law in Mexico and the challenges it poses to implementing the country's energy reform.
