The Ineffectiveness of Non-Governmental Institutions in Serving Iran's National Interests
Dr. Masoud Motallebi
The cooperation between sovereignty, the private sector and civil society is inevitable. Sovereignty is responsible for implementation of domestic and foreign policies. Civil society has consisted of public associations which try to develop the country for nonprofit and social ends. Civil society has faced with the challenges in Iran. From a struct-ural perspective, it has faced cultural, legal and economic obstacles. These institutions are inefficient due to unclear goals, weakness of management, lack of credibility and lack of social status and lack of awareness of these organizations about their role in society. The instit-utions have faced external challenges such as their ambiguous rela-tions with state, lack of common identity among non-governmental organization and lack of understanding and acceptance of the role of non-governmental organizations.
