- Author(s): Thorburn, Craig
- et al.
This paper examines changes taking place in village government in three districts on the west coast of Aceh, Indonesia that were severely affected by the December 26, 2004 Asian earthquake and tsunami. The paper is based upon findings of the Aceh Community Assistance Research Project, a multi-donor supported qualitative social research project designed to identify and better understand the factors that supported and/or constrained recovery and redevelopment in communities in Aceh in the wake of this large-scale natural disaster.
