We begin a busy week by commenting on the Prevent strategy and how the government can tackle radicalisation.
We have a special event following up on these issues, looking at countering campus extremism. And we’re commenting on former Guantanamo Bay detainee Shaker Aamer’s first interviews to the media. The Henry Jackson Society’s experts and researchers are available for comment and analysis on these and all the weeks’ other stories:
Hannah Stuart, Research Fellow
Hannah is continuing her work in Islamism-inspired terrorism in the UK and is available to comment on counter-extremism and radicalisation-related issues.
Tom Wilson, Resident Associate Fellow
Tom is commenting on a ban on women taking part in elections being lifted in Saudi Arabia, which has seen women elected to municipal councils for the first time
Dr Andrew Foxall, Director, Russia Studies Centre
“Later this week, the EU will meet to discuss renewing its sanctions against Russia. This must happen. Despite the signing of the Minsk II ceasefire, in February, Russia is still waging war in Ukraine. Were sanctions not to be renewed, European governments would, in effect, be encouraging Russia’s aggression.”
Emily Dyer, Research Fellow
Emily is continuing to assess the Islamic State threat to Europe and the role of Islamist ideology in violent and non-violent extremism, to be detailed in a forthcoming paper. She is available to comment on IS and female jihadis.
