The CASLA Institute was created to replace the Center for Studies and Analysis for Latin America (CAS LA), attached to the now defunct Respekt Institute.
After Respekt Institute closed its doors, experts on Latin American issues decided to continue the activities begun in 2007, founding the new CASLA Institute, which quickly became one of the main platforms for the study of Latin America in the Czech Republic.
Its analysts and researchers are from the political, diplomatic, academic, and media fields, as well as active in the promotion of human rights.
CASLA’s mission is to provide analysis of issues related to the strengthening of democracy and the rule of law, policies that promote economic, social and institutional development, and the promotion of human rights in Latin America.
To this end, CASLA organizes from its headquarters in Prague, Czech Republic, outreach activities aimed at the general public but also at institutions, media, diplomats, politicians and students.
Our firts annual report will be available soon.

“We should actively support the efforts of the European Union to conclude association agreements with Latin America, as well as regional cooperation between the Pacific Alliance and other institutions”
Jan Ruml, Member of the Board & Founder, CASLA Institute
Welcome to Casla Institute!
Our mission is to share with Latin-American reformers the finest lessons of democratic and economic transformation in post-communist Europe. Our fellows and analysts are on the front-lines of the battle of ideas and the unending defense of human rights. Much of our inspiration is drawn from Václav Havel, the first democratically elected president of Czechoslovakia and the Czech Republic after 1989.
