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 Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University.
U.S. News & World Report ranks the Schar School’s graduate programs among the best. The Washingtonian listed the creation of George Mason University as an event that shaped Washington, D.C., saying that Mason has “a record of having broken DC universities’ monopoly on public-policy expertise.”
Mark your calendars! On May 26th, Dr. Louise Shelley will be participating as a panelist in a Wilson Center event on Violent Non-State Actors and COVID-19. To RSVP and for more information please visit the following link.

Located where policy happens—just six miles from the U.S. Capitol Building—the Schar School’s campuses are located in Arlington and Fairfax, Virginia. Students are connected to jobs, internships, networking, and experiences that can only be found in the Washington, D.C., area.
