Diplomacy of Iran towards Globalization: The Tension between Globalization and Islamization in Iran

Daryuosh Piri, Adlina Ab Halim


The issue of globalization and its impacts on national and local cultures has gained ground recently in scientific research. Infiltration of global forces and foreign cultures into the territory of national and local cultures has leaded to the formation of the feeling of threat and danger among a great number of societies. This feeling of threat has caused some reaction among the native cultures in the world. As well as many other countries, Iran is concerned about the threats and the weakening of the Iranian cultural and religious values because the cultures and the values have entered its territory through globalization. In fact, this feeling has resulted in the tension between two forces inside the country, i.e., the Iranian Islamic-Religious Culture and Globalization. Each of these forces pursues more penetration in social and cultural arenas in Iran. Such tension is, in fact, between the two forces named “Islamization” and globalization. Key words: Globalization; Islamization; Cultural invasion; Iran’ diplomacyResumé: La question de mondialisation et ses impacts sur des cultures nationales et locales a gagné du terrain récemment dans la recherche scientifique. L'infiltration de forces mondiales et des cultures étrangères dans le territoire de cultures nationales et locales a entraine à la formation du sentiment de menace et le danger parmi un grand nombre de sociétés. Ce sentiment de menace a causé un peu de réaction parmi les cultures natales dans le monde. Aussi bien que beaucoup d'autres pays, l’Iran est concerné des menaces et l'affaiblissement des valeurs culturelles et religieuses iraniennes parce que les cultures et les valeurs sont entrés à son territoire par la mondialisation. En fait, ce sentiment a abouti à la tension entre deux forces à l'intérieur du pays, c'est-à-dire, la Culture Islamique-religieuse iranienne et la Mondialisation. Chacune de ces forces poursuit plus de pénétration dans des arènes sociales et culturelles en Iran. Une telle tension est, en fait, entre les deux forces nommées "l'Islamisation" et la mondialisation.Mots-clés: Mondialisation; Islamisation; Invasion culturelle; L'Iran ' diplomatie
