CEELI Program Director Gives Lecture at Masaryk University
On November 6, CEELI Institute Program Director Marek Svoboda delivered a lecture on Rule of Law and Transitional Justice at the Faculty of Social Studies at Masaryk University in Brno. The lecture was part of a semester-long course organized by Demas, a platform of Czech NGOs working, predominantly abroad, in support of democracy, human rights and rule of law. The topics discussed included the various definitions of rule of law, how they correlate with foreign assistance programs of the CEELI Institute, other similar organizations and what the most common pitfalls and challenges are of such cooperations. The students also had the opportunity to discuss the current changes in Czech foreign assistance priorities, dividing into two groups and each arguing for one approach.
