ABOUT THE HENRY JACKSON SOCIETY

We are a think tank and policy-shaping force that fights for the principles and alliances which keep societies free.

We work across borders and party lines to combat extremism, advance democracy and real human rights - and make a stand in an increasingly uncertain world.

WHO WAS HENRY JACKSON?

HJS is named for Henry M. “Scoop” Jackson, a Democratic US Senator who strongly supported civil rights and protecting the environment — while also maintaining a strong opposition to totalitarianism and Communism. A liberal on domestic issues who was also an ardent hawk on foreign affairs, Henry Jackson was a bulwark in the fight for democracy and freedom in the 20th century.

STATEMENT OF PRINCIPLES

The pursuit of a robust foreign policy was one of Henry ‘Scoop’ Jackson’s most central concerns. This was to be based on clear universal principles such as the global promotion of the rule of law, liberal democracy, civil rights, environmental responsibility and the market economy.
