Ambassador King Delivers Remarks at CEELI Meeting

Ambassador King delivered welcome remarks at the CEELI Institute’s Annual Meeting this morning.  The Institute’s Annual Meeting brings together board members, judges, lawyers and other experts to discuss rule of law issues and provides the Institute with an opportunity to review its efforts and programs.  This year the participants will also discuss threats to rule of law in the region and the development of effective responses to those challenges.

The U.S. Embassy and the U.S. government have supported CEELI throughout the 18 years of its presence in Prague especially in promoting democratic development, combatting corruption, supporting judicial independence, and strengthening the role of civil society organizations.
