She is well known for her innovative approach to combining experimental qualitative methods, discourse analysis and narratives. Ghorashi has made important contributions to theories concerning the inclusion of immigrants in society, for example by revealing hidden structures of exclusion.

Ghorashi founded the Refugee Academy to bring refugee-related research and practice closer together.
