Abstract: Edmund Malesky's dissertation work, on the impact of foreign direct investment on local-central government relations in Vietnam, won the best dissertation award in comparative politics. As he explained, over the past decade, Vietnam has created an unusually high number of new provinces while simultaneously experiencing greater liberalization. According to Malesky, the dramatic growth of provinces results from the reformist strategy to further liberalization as well as various benefits to be had among elites through gerrymandering.
