The CEELI Institute Annual Meeting

Mark your calendars to join us in Prague, at the Villa Grebovka, on July 9-10, 2017 for the CEELI Institute‘s Annual Meeting. We look forward to bringing together a diverse cross-section of judges, academicians, diplomats, government officials, human rights activists, and legal experts, as well as our board members, funders, partners, and past program participants, to discuss some of the most pressing issues we face in our efforts to advance the rule of law in ever more challenging environments. The gathering allows us the opportunity to convene prominent thought leaders from the international development community for frank discussions on the critical challenges facing our region as it struggles with war, corruption, and the rise of illiberal regimes which question the value of democratic transitions. The program will focus not just on problems, but on solutions: What are effective strategies for delivering development assistance and supporting civil society in the face of hostile environments and government repression?

All events will be held at the Villa Grebovka, in Prague. We have limited accommodations for up to 38 guests at the Villa. Since space at the Villa is limited, if the number of guests exceeds the Villa’s capacity, we will help arrange nearby hotel rooms.

Registration is now open on the CEELI Institute’s website at:
