Recently, Dr. Rahman has been immersed in studying the ideas of Rousseau, Muhammad Iqbal, and Mary Parker Follett regarding conflict and integration, with the objective of constructing a framework for consensus-building in communities for the collective benefit.

    Dr. Rahman's leadership prowess is evident in her role as a founding member and President of the Association of Media and Communication Academic Professionals (AMCAP), where she has spearheaded international conferences on media and society and doctoral spring schools in Pakistan. Notably, she has been elected twice as the Chair of the Islam and Media Group of the International Association of Mass Communication Research (IAMCR).
