The mission of the CEELI Institute has always been clear: to bolster the rule of law by providing legal education to prosecutors, judges, attorneys, and other reformers worldwide. Central to this mission is the development of fair judiciaries, functioning market economies, and respect for human rights. What is less clear is why the CEELI Institute is in the Czech Republic and what makes the Czech Republic a good home for the organization today. The Czech Republic’s history of transition to democracy and a rule of law makes it a hallmark example of a peaceful and progressive change and an ideal location for the CEELI Institute.
