عنوان مقاله [English]
The Iranian regional order has a very long history, dating back to the Achaemenid period. The collapse of the Sassanid was the end of the pattern of Iranian regionalism, namely the satrapy. With the formation of the Westphalian order, regional orders emerged in the form of geopolitics. During this period, Iran came under the control of such an order. The Islamic Revolution as emergence and its coincidence with the evolution of the international system from simple to complex-chaotic necessitates a new analytical apparatus for the Iranian regional order that the international relations literature has not addressed and in this field, they are seriously inefficient. Based on this reality, the main research question is based on what are the consequences of the Islamic Revolution on the regional order of Iran? The author tries to provide a convincing answer and a new analytical apparatus in this field by using the theory of complex and chaotic systems and also by applying the abduction method which focuses on explaining emerging facts and finding the best explanation. The author illustrates that network regional order with two characteristics including panarchy and heterarchy is an innovation by the Islamic revolution in the field of Iranian regional order.
