David Eric Johns

As Operations Chair for the Global Counter-Terrorism Foundation, I deploy my extensive experience in engineering, regulatory work, and military leadership to drive impactful initiatives in counterterrorism. My 37-year military tenure culminating as a Vice Wing Commander (rank of Colonel) in the Maine Air National Guard honed my skills in strategic planning and operational excellence. This background allows me to spearhead international collaborations, enhance security frameworks, and lead senior leadership training programs. My efforts ensure our foundation remains at the forefront of developing and implementing effective counter-terrorism strategies, ultimately contributing to a safer global environment.

Sebastien Lavoie

My name is Seb Lavoie, and I spent two decades in law enforcement, primarily in Tactical Operations, ultimately serving as Chief Warrant Officer (Sgt Major) for the British Columbia Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Throughout my career, I continuously sought out academic programs that would enhance my operational expertise in counter-terrorism. I completed a Master's Degree in International Security Studies at the Paris Graduate School, facilitated by the Global Counterterrorism Institute (GCTI). The program's curriculum exceeded my expectations, and I greatly benefited from the diverse and international cohort. I highly recommend this program, as well as other programs offered by GCTI, to anyone seeking to develop the skills, knowledge, and abilities necessary to navigate the current and complex counter-terrorism landscape.

The Master's in International Security Studies program with the Global Counter Terrorism Institute and Paris Graduate School has been a transformative experience for me. Apart from having a comprehensive understanding of global security issues, I have gained a deeper appreciation for the interconnectedness of global security challenges and the importance of strategic thinking and collaboration in addressing them. The opportunity to study alongside experts in the field and engage in thought-provoking discussions has expanded my perspective and enhanced my critical thinking abilities.
Moreover, the hands-on approach offered by the Global Counter Terrorism Institute has enabled me to apply theoretical concepts to real-life scenarios. This has not only deepened my understanding of counterterrorism strategies but also honed my problem-solving skills and decision-making abilities in high-pressure situations. Additionally, the partnership with the Paris Graduate School has provided me with a unique cultural and intellectual experience. Being immersed in a diverse and vibrant international community has broadened my horizons and fostered a global perspective on security issues.
Overall, the Master's in International Security Studies program with the Global Counter Terrorism Institute and Paris Graduate School has been a truly enriching and transformative journey. It has equipped me with the necessary tools and perspectives to contribute meaningfully to the field of international security and counterterrorism. I am confident that the knowledge and experiences gained through this program will continue to shape my career and enable me to make a positive impact in the global security arena.

Todd M Price 

As co-founder of the Global Counter-Terrorism Institute, I have devoted my career to enhancing global security by developing strategic and operational frameworks that effectively address counter-terrorism. My background as a US Army veteran and an expert in the field has enabled me to spearhead international collaborations and training initiatives, significantly improving the response capabilities of government agencies and private entities to security threats. My efforts have propelled the institute to a leading position in counter-terrorism education and consultancy. Through our work, we create context-sensitive solutions that tackle the complexities of modern security challenges, striving to make a safer world a tangible reality.

Kelli Bond

Through the Paris Graduate School and its partnership with GCTI, my profoundly beloved friend and colleague–the late Major J. Duncan (“JD”) Southall (US Army, Ret.)—became the best version of himself as he completed his Master’s in International Security Studies program! His life-altering experience as a witness to and whistleblower against torture in Iraq became the basis for a change.org petition and his PGS-GCTI master’s thesis, both of which I had the honor of serving. We had many more projects planned around public diplomacy and human rights when he passed away. Some of them would have been through the new GCTI Foundation (GCTIF). Your support of the GCTIF would honor his legacy of compassion, empathy, and the quest for a safer, more just world.​
