Abstract

Resource nationalism in Mexico represents a symbol of sovereignty, and it is a pillar of the national identity. The resource nationalism discourse perpetuates the dependency and exploitation of fossil fuels, which negatively impacts the relevance, and implementation of climate change policy. The resource nationalism discourse has been institutionalised throughout the years. In contrast, climate change discourse is portrayed as an act of compliance with international policy, which reduces the domestic urgency to develop a sustainable energy policy.
