  My research interests focus on understanding the social dimension of the ongoing energy transition in Mexico. Energy transition policies have been successfully promoting the investment in renewable energy projects, but they are facing strong social opposition, especially in indigenous communities. Thus, my research aims to undertake the process of coproduction across scales between the energy transition and agents in Mexico. To meet this objective, I will do the following: 1) Identify the mechanisms, processes, and key international and national actors involved in the process of diffusion and internalization of energy transition policies in Mexico; 2) Explore the influence that domestic actors and interest groups played in its process of institutionalization and the particular form that energy transition policies took at the national level; and 3) Analyze the impacts of implementation of these policies through renewable energy projects on local communities and the effects that domestic political process have had on projects implementation. This research will provide insights on the cross-scale influence of energy transition policies on actors, institutions, and practices; and the role that multilevel actors play shaping these policies; more succinctly, the process of mutual constitution between policies and actors across scales.
