Dr. Rahmani’s research explores Critical Human Rights and the Middle East, Social Exclusion, Justice, War, Violence, Ethnicity, Social Policy and Quality of Life. Social Indicators of Health as well as Social Indicators Systems are finding special attention in his Subjective and Objective Quality of Life assessment. He has been active in research and teaching at different universities and international institutions in Europe and the Middle East. Quantitative and Qualitative research methods, Statistical Analysis, SPSS, sociometeric scaling and large data analysis are used extensively in his applied/field research. His early research focus was topics related to social demography, urbanization, social movements, peace and reconciliation. Rahmani coined the term “Rooftop Societies” for Middle Eastern countries; which postulates the existence of extensive socio-cultural and political incongruity. His most recent book titled “Rooftop Societies: the Middle East Paradox” is his latest sociological analysis of the Middle East.
Current projects: “Disappearance of Agency at the Age of War” and Quality of Life of refugees and internally displaced communities in Iraq
