Apprehension Policy Transfer of Administrative Reforms in Iran: Grounded Theory’s Strategy-Based Research



There are two ground approaches for explaining the type of administrative reforms in every country. The first approach searches creating factors of administrative reforms inside every country. But the second approach assigns diffusion of administrative reforms ties in countries to the international and global factors. Relying on the second theoretical framework, this qualitative research tries to theorize transferring process of administrative reforms ties from international arena to Iran. The obtained theory shows that the key phenomenon of this process is the “national management lesson-drawing” which explains the transfer of administrative reforms, in the context of intervening factors and relying on causal factors.
