Protection of Maize Under the Mexican Biosafety Law: Environment and Trade


Protection of Maize Under the Mexican Biosafety Law: Environment and Trade Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book analyzes the importance of maize worldwide and the special importance for Mexico as a center of origin and diversity (COD). By adopting a comparative approach, the analysis focuses on how developed and developing countries handle imports of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The book also analyzes the impact that genetically modified maize imports from the United States might have in Mexico as a COD of maize. This book illustrates the process of economic liberalization in Mexico from the 1980s until the inception of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) in 1994, and provides descriptive and analytical insight into the Mexican legal framework of biotechnology and biosafety, including complying with both international environmental and trade commitments.


Book News Annotation:

This text is a doctoral thesis written by González during her studies at the University of Göttingen, Germany. Over the course of three chapters, González describes the advent of agricultural biotechnology, analyzes Mexican laws and regulations with respect to the use of biotechnology, and traces the history of Mexico's economic liberalization in the years leading up to the North American Free Trade Agreement. Maize, described as the most important staple crop in Mexico, is the primary focus of the text. It is unclear whether this text was originally written in Spanish, German, English, or another language, but this version appears to have a modest amount of proofreading errors.
