The Saratov Center, housed at the Saratov State Law Academy, was established in January 2003. Since then, the Center hosted a number of national academic seminars on the general issues of organized crime and corruption, as well as a specialized conference on human trafficking. The Center has successfully hosted five sessions of its Summer School for Junior Professors from 2003-2007. The Center’s research has focused, among other issues, on corruption in Saratov universities, trafficking in human beings, antiquities and drugs, money laundering, environmental crimes, and corruption in the voting process. All of the Center’s research, as well as its monthly press reviews are available (in Russian) at the Center’s website.
