In conversation with : Tim Holtam - How table tennis can create a more inclusive society

It is hard to imagine how two old table tennis tables and a couple of bats could be the start of a highly successful and truly inclusive, multicultural sports club for an entire community. But from these humble origins, what began as a small venture for a Sussex University student, who wanted to bring ‘ping pong’ to the youth of Brighton, has turned into a thriving organisation.

In conversation with: Saeida Rouass - Exploring the impacts of far right violence on women

When Saeida Rouass applied for a Churchill Fellowship in 2019 to investigate the impact of violent extremism on women, in particular survivors of white supremacist groups and violence, she was surprised to find the connections between racially motivated violence and gender-based violence. The learnings from Saeida’s Fellowship, and 28 other Fellows, have gone on to help inform the Churchill Fellowship’s Migration report due to be published shortly.
