Emma Webb
research fellow, The Henry Jackson Society; co-author, An Enduring Threat: Europe's Islamist Terror Networks Then and Now

Emma Webb is a Research Fellow at the Henry Jackson Society focusing on European and domestic terrorism, and pan-European Islamist terror networks. She has spoken on national and regional radio on issues relating to the threat level facing the UK, recent terror attacks in Europe and radicalisation, and has written for the Spectator, the Independent and the Times of Israel.

Her recent co-authored publication, An Enduring Threat: Europe’s Islamist Terror Networks Then and Now, assesses the degree to which the threat posed by Islamic State in Europe can be called ‘new’ and is the first major comparison of al-Qaeda’s European terrorist networks in the early 2000s with the Islamic State networks behind the attacks on Brussels and Paris between November 2015 and March 2016.

She holds an MA in Jewish Studies from King’s College London and a BA in Theological and Religious Studies from Trinity College, Cambridge.
