Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal's Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


This partnership aims to understand the socio-political effects of Nepal’s 2015 earthquakes and post-earthquake reconstruction, particularly as they interact with the nation’s changes already underway as a result of the end of the decade-long civil war, the process of federal state restructuring, and the protracted political impasse over the adoption of a new Constitution. The partnership’s main objectives include launching a partnership through pilot research modules on three domains of expertise; collaborating on research design and dissemination through knowledge-sharing workshops in Canada, Nepal and Denmark; bringing Canada-based Nepali diaspora organizations into dialogue with academics and Canadian humanitarian agencies; curating an online research portal and publishing an edited volume; and generating a proposal for a wider-scale and long-term Partnership Grant in a broader trans-Himalayan context.
