Ellen van Holstein

Ellen van Holstein is a Vice Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the RMIT Social & Global Studies Centre.

Ellen van Holstein is a Vice-Chancellor's Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies. Her research analyses who gets to be included in different spaces and networks of ‘community’ and the equity issues that emerge as responsibility for those problems shifts from governments and individuals to collectives, service organisations and volunteers.

Currently, Ellen is working on research on Australian community centres (also known as neighbourhood houses) to analyse who are finding access and inclusion in Australian society through these organisations and who are at risk of exclusion as funding for centres changes.
