PhD Project

Rana’s research explores the relationship between youth mobilization and the public urban space as a means to help build and sustain social cohesion and inclusion across diverse cities.  Her research focuses on the role of youth as active citizens in diverse communities and the urban context as a platform capable of advancing intercultural dialogue and embracing diversity.  Her research aims to amplify the voice of youth in urban politics, produce supporting data to influence youth and urban policies and practices and contribute to the emerging body of literature bridging youth, urban and sustaining peace studies.


Rana joined CTPSR in May 2017 where she is currently pursuing a PhD through a scholarship jointly granted from the CTPSR and the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations.  Her research interests are focused around youth civic engagement, urban diversity and peacebuilding. Rana holds a MSc in Spatial Planning from the German Jordanian University and a BSc in Architecture from the Applied Science Private University in Jordan. Rana's work and voluntary experience spans across architecture, spatial planning and community and youth development.
