John Woodward, Professor of International Relations at the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies at Boston University, was interviewed by Fox25 News Boston on the recent global travel alert issued by the U.S. Department of State amid concerns that terror groups and individuals are planning more attacks after the Paris massacres.

From the segment, Woodward stated:

“Terrorists are bent on evil and they are going to strike, particularly soft targets. I think in Boston we should be mindful of that, but we shouldn’t let it control or ruin our lives.”
