It experiences internal rebellion and external sanctions and aggression as it attempts to achieve economic and political independence within a global political economy. Taken separately, each of the many hurdles to Iran's economic recovery would be somewhat daunting; taken together; they are formidable (Mohammadi, 2003). As stated earlier, the effects of globalization on Iran are many- both positive and negative. Some of them are discussed below.
Globalization has had a mammoth effect on the Military sector of Iran which we call the diffusion of power. In terms of the concentration of power, the direction of events seems to be firmly away from any globalizing trend and toward the diffusion of power and regionalization of interaction. (Buzan.B, Wver.O, & Wilde.J, 1998)
Liberalization, as the name implies, generally means the relaxation of certain rigid restrictions and regulations. Sometimes, liberalization is associated with privatization; however, both are two different processes. In the Iranian context, market liberalization includes the agricultural front- rice and wheat markets and so on. This is another effect of globalization on Iran
There are several definitions for democratization and in one of the best definitions Korany states that it "entails an expansion of political participation in such a way as to provide citizens with a degree of real and meaningful collective control over policy."Democratization in Iran is one of the main effects of globalization. The development of democratization in Iran is rife with impediments and these impediments are challenged by certain social trends within Iranian society. After a careful examination of democratization, the impediments, forces and methods thereof, we have learned that there is no one simple answer in developing democracy in Iran. Thus, these are the three major effects of globalization on Iran. (Democratization in Iran, n.d)
Role of domestic politics in Iran's globalization policy.
US foreign policy toward Iran has evolved to a point that it can no longer compete with or overcome certain forces. At the same time, forces are present that could assist the US in reestablishing formal dialogue and, ultimately, normal diplomatic relations with Iran. Globalization is the force that in some instances is assisting US foreign policy. At the same time, other elements of globalization are eroding US desires with respect to Iranian programs in WMD. The time has come for the US to admit that its current policy of sanctions is obsolete. The US needs to reengage Iran on economic and social terms that are the byproducts of economic globalization. (George.S, 2003).
Politics of identity- Iran's globalization policy
As Iran follows the theoracracy (a political unit governed by a deity or by officials thought to be divinely guided) all the policies and theories are. The challenges that Iran faces in regard to globalization are evident enough, first it is economics and second is politics.. The diverse on post-revolutionary development are reflected in the debates within Iran on globalization: reformers allude to Iran's strength in this field,
