Welcome to TraCCC
The Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC) is the first center in the United States devoted to understanding the links among terrorism, transnational crime and corruption, and to teach, research, train and help formulate policy on these critical issues. TraCCC is a research center within the School of Public Policy at George Mason University.
The ever increasing integration of national economies into the global economic system has meant that one country’s problems often present serious challenges for other countries. The U.S. housing finance crisis and subsequent global economic meltdown is a recent and obvious case of this. While national maladies can and do quickly become international headaches, certain problems a country might face appear to remain largely with national borders as global actors seek a strategy of containment. Nelli Ponomareva, a TraCCC grantee and law student at the Saratov State Judicial Academy, outlines one such problem facing Russia today, that of criminalized trading on Russian financial markets.
