I was recently honored to host a State Department briefing for a delegation of young party leaders from Croatia. The nation’s laws and constitution contain a number of provisions regarding democratic principles and a free society. Our open discussion centered on U.S. campaign finance rules and lobbying. The rules in Croatia have changed, as I understand, since the date this IFES report was published. There have been efforts to address corruption and increase transparency. The delegation is visiting with others in Washington, DC, North Carolina, Seattle, and New York.
