Galen has been awarded a Quick Response Grant from the CU Natural Hazards Center to support his ongoing dissertation work on Chinese development in Nepal. The grant will specifically support Galen's current project, (Re)Building the State: Border Infrastructure, Chinese Development, and the Politics of Aid in Post-Earthquake Nepal. This funding will enable him to return to Kathmandu over the winter break to collect new and perishable data on Chinese aid and investment in post-earthquake Nepal and further examine Beijing's role in current state-building projects both in Nepal and across South Asia.
