Abstract: This working paper is an output of the research project, ‘Expertise, Labour and Mobility in Nepal’s Post-Conflict, Post-Disaster Reconstruction: Construction, Law and Finance as Domains of Social Transformation’. The project conducted research in three of the districts most affected by the 2015 earthquakes: Bhaktapur, Dhading and Sindhupalchowk. This paper is based on the findings from the field site in Dhading. It looks at the relationship between construction, law and finance as vectors of social transformation during the process of post-earthquake reconstruction in the village of Borang in Dhading.
