The Henry Jackson Society(HJS) is a British neocon think tank and political action committee. HJS was founded in Cambridge, England, on March 11, 2005, and was launched in the Houses of Parliament, on November 22, 2005, by Dr. Brendan Simms of Cambridge University in honor of the late Henry 'Scoop' Jackson, the Democratic Senator from Washington state, renowned for championing the right of Jewish emigration from the USSR to Israel. [1]

The Society, a think tank and political action committee, is based at the University of Cambridge and aims to promote 'democratic geopolitics'[citation needed]. Many of its supporters are among the most powerful people in Britain and the United States, including the former directors of the MI6 and CIA, the former President of Lithuania, a reem of British MPs, and a number of editorial staff from various newspapers[citation needed]. The secretive nature of the society is perhaps evidence of its considerable political influence[citation needed].

CSC merger

On 6 April 2011, the HJS announced that the Centre for Social Cohesion and HJS would be merging. The press release also announced: "Centre for Social Cohesion Director Douglas Murray will also be joining the Henry Jackson Society as Associate Director."
