Center for Liberty in the Middle East
CLIME is a transatlantic initiative to support individuals and groups in the Middle East that are promoting democratic values of liberty and tolerance. Many of these “voices of liberty” are largely unseen and unknown, not only in the United States and Europe but also within their own societies. They face a combination of heavy government censorship, language barriers and a lack of financial resources. By supporting their work, CLIME aims to promote peaceful transitions in the region to political systems that rest on the pillars of representative government, rule of law, separation of powers, individual rights, economic opportunity, and respect for ethnic, religious and political diversity.
