the relationship between policymaker’s values and policy change. In this regard some theories have dominated the literature over the past decades; the most important ones are March and Olsen’s “Garbage Can Model”, Kingdom’s “policy streams,” and “Advocacy Coalition Framework”. These theories seek to build a theory of chaotic policymaking situation which will lead to anarchic and radical policy change. In this article, we posit a methodological innovation in the area of policy change by introducing the “Ideological Dualism” hypothesis into the policy change theory which occurs in ideological regimes like the Islamic Republic. This integration is accomplished through a study of the nature of the Islamic political philosophy and Iranian nationalism and the advocates of these ideas in policymaking system.

Abstract: The role being played by bureaucracy in today's organizational style of life, is and has been a matter of study for prominent academic works, whether at the time it was put on the politico-Administrative science of the modern states by peerless works of Max Weber or when was a nameless manner in periods of the ancient great empires. This constant company of the Political systems,-Bureaucracy is by no means, a separate set from the former. In this article, we try to review the fundamental interactions conceived from the functions of these two concepts specially in developing countries.

Abstract: European countries are so active in the field of cultural policy and in this way also benefit from the public support. In this article, the authors tried to focus on clarifying the notion of culture in Europe and then to figure out the basis, models, and approaches of cultural policy among some of the major countries of the continent. The authors also tried to discuss the implications of these policies based on cultural statistics- which are produced formally all year in Europe. According to the authors, this recognition will be pioneer in comparing our way with some other’s and will emerge informative and useful lessons for cultural policy researchers and policy-makers in Iran.

Abstract: Some researchers in the field of public policy seek to explain the relationship between policymaker’s values and policy change. In this regard some theories have dominated the literature over the past decades; the most important ones are March and Olsen’s “Garbage Can Model”, Kingdom’s “policy streams,” and “Advocacy Coalition Framework”. These theories seek to build a theory of chaotic policymaking situation which will lead to anarchic and radical policy change. In this article, we posit a methodological innovation in the area of policy change by introducing the “Ideological Dualism” hypothesis into the policy change theory which occurs in ideological regimes like the Islamic Republic. This integration is accomplished through a study of the nature of the Islamic political philosophy and Iranian nationalism and the advocates of these ideas in policymaking system. The results help to further explain policy change and the role that various values play in prompting policy change or maintenance of the status quo.
