New Intern Profile – Ruth Brain


Hello! My name is Ruth and I am a new Employment Access Programme (EAP) at Scalabrini. I am from Cape Town and recently graduated from the University of Cape Town with Honours in Justice and Transformation, a politics specialisation. I did my undergraduate degree in Politics, Philosophy, Economics and Business French and I am passionate about realising justice, in its multiple forms in Southern Africa.

Some of my fields of interest are conflict in sub-Saharan Africa, organized crime and non-state violence, transitional justice, development and inclusive urban spaces. I did my dissertation on using transport to promote social inclusion in Global South cities – inclusion and integration are particular interests of mine!

And so here I am interning at Scalabrini for 3 months – while deliberating over whether or not to do my Masters in Migration next year. When I’m not at work, I enjoy hiking, swimming in the sea and eating ice cream 🙂
