  Marcelo Torelly

Counterinsurgency and Stabilization have become widely discussed concepts in the policy and academic debates around intervention, post-conflict reconstruction and state-building. But how do these concepts play out in practice? The speaker will discuss his experiences implementing stabilization programs in Maiwand District, Kandahar, known as the birthplace of the Taliban, and will reflect on the challenges and lessons learned.

Carlos Terrones is a strategic thinker and leader with experience restructuring complex programs in war zone environments and local governments. In Iraq and Afghanistan, he served as the Special Governance Advisor to Senior U.S. Military Officers, Local Government Officials, and Senior U.S. Federal Government Officials. Carlos received the U.S. Department of State Meritorious Award for his work in Maiwand District and he was recognized by both the Iraqi and Afghan governments for his commitment to public service. After his tour in Afghanistan, Carlos was appointed to New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Administration as the Assistant Deputy Commissioner for the Department of Social Services. Carlos is author of The Other Front in Afghanistan: Stories of Maiwand Building Governance and Development.
