Research information:

Dr. Rukhsana Ahmed’s research embraces the cross/trans/inter-disciplinary nature of communication scholarship, with specific focus on exploring the role of communication processes in improving health outcomes among marginalized communities and promoting broader social changes in international health contexts. She is particularly interested in the ways in which systems of beliefs, values, actions, and symbols are shared, or not, by people and how social groups influence communication in health care interactions. She is also interested in the ways in which people’s cultural selves become entwined with race, ethnicity, gender, and social class groups and shape their perceptions of health, illness, and health care. Although her research is deeply rooted in health communication, Dr. Ahmed is also actively involved in interdisciplinary and multisectoral projects and partnerships in other realms of communication, including immigrant integration, multicultural media, and religious diversity.

Research information:

I am a Canadian citizen of Syrian origin. Having lived half of my life in the Middle East and the other half in Canada I gained deep knowledge of both societies. I have been an advocate of cross-cultural diplomacy. Academically, I specialized in comparative foreign policy analysis, comparing Canadian and European Union Foreign policy in the Arab world - particularly democracy promotion and electoral assistance. I have been working as a policy analyst and consultant for more than ten years, then in 2014 I joined the University of Ottawa as a part time professor teaching courses on the Middle East and Arab Politics. However, my passion has always been at the community level which is why I joined the Rotary Club of Ottawa, where I have been championing my #Canadians4Refugees campaign. I published many articles and editorials on Canada's foreign policy in the Middle East and have been a frequent guest on this topic and on the Syrian refugee issue.
