HJS experts available for comment following Barcelona attack

Henry Jackson Society

17th August

The horrific attack in Barcelona is still ongoing and much remains unclear. However, the Spanish authorities have confirmed that it is an act of terrorism, and it bears all the hallmarks of the Radical Islamist attacks inflicted on the UK earlier this year. All our thoughts are with the victims of this evil act.

As the situation evolves, the research team at The Henry Jackson Society stands ready to offer analysis and insight based on our considerable research into the evolving tactics and motivations of European terrorists.

The Henry Jackson Society can provide interviews with analysts including Executive Director, Dr Alan Mendoza, Senior Research Fellow Nikita Malik and Research Fellows, Tom Wilson, Emma Webb and Kyle Orton.

Notes to Editors:

The Henry Jackson Society is a think tank and policy-shaping force that fights for the principles and alliances which keep societies free – working across borders and party lines to combat extremism, advance democracy and real human rights, and make a stand in an increasingly uncertain world.  Henry Jackson Society research and events provide key analysis and insight to policy-makers and the media.
