Mark your calendars to join us in Prague, at the Villa Grebovka, on June 26-27, 2016 for the CEELI Institute Annual Meeting. Once again we look forward to bringing together a diverse cross section of academicians, government officials and experts, as well as our board members, funders, partners, and friends, 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 take an intensive look at our programs, as well as hold a frank discussion 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.  This year’s 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.  Our schedule is as follows:

June 26 – Guests arrive in Prague; Welcome Reception at the Villa Gröbovka

June 27 – Full Day Program of Speakers and Panels at the Institute:  Advancing the Rule of Law:  Unfinished Business.

June 29 – CEELI Institute Board of Directors Meetings

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 exceed the Villa’s capacity, we will help arrange nearby hotel rooms.
