Tomorrow from 1 to 3:30 p.m., as part of its Peace and Stability Operations Colloquium series, the Peace Operations Policy Program (POPP) of the School of Public Policy will present “A Practitioner’s Observations of Stabilization and Reconstruction in Afghanistan.” The program will be held on the Arlington Campus in the Original Building, Room 251, with speaker Hank Nichols, JD, of the U.S. Army Peacekeeping and Stability Operations.

Nichols is the professor for rule of law for the U.S. Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute in Carlisle, Penn. He has experience on both sides of the civil-military affairs equation, having served several years with NATO and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Nichols recently returned from Afghanistan where he was the U.S. Agency for International Development’s representative on the multiagency Provincial Reconstruction Team in Gardez. His talk will focus on the U.S. government’s civilian efforts and the civil-military interface in Afghanistan.

The program is hosted by Robert “Bill” Farrand, retired ambassador and POPP senior advisor. To attend, contact Allison Frendak at 703-993-4983 or afrendak@gmu.edu”.
