The Henry Jackson Society describes itself as "a cross-partisan, British-based think-tank".[1] It says that its founders and supporters "are united by a common interest in fostering a strong British and European commitment towards freedom, liberty, constitutional democracy, human rights, governmental and institutional reform and a robust foreign, security and defence policy and transatlantic alliance".[1]

It was founded in Cambridge on 11 March 2005, and launched in the Houses of Parliament on 22 November 2005.[1]

On 1 April 2011, it merged with the Centre for Social Cohesion. The CSC's website says: "We are pleased to announce that the CSC has combined together with the London-based think tank The Henry Jackson Society, who share the same philosophy as the CSC in addition to their broader mission statement."[2]
