The study is separated into two modules:
- The first module comprises an ex-post evaluation of the economic, social and environmental effects of the existing EU – Mexico FTA.
- The second module is an ex-ante assessment aiming at analysing the economic, social, and environmental impact of a possible modernization of the existing FTA.
While reporting will be done separately for each module, insights gained in the ex-post analysis will transfer into the ex-ante assessment.
In addition, consultations will be a key element. This process does not only involve dissemination of results, but it is a two-way process in which citizens provide feedback and inputs for governments and policy makers.
