عنوان مقاله [English]
The article seeks to offer a pathology of the reformist in the Islamic Republic era. The general title of ‘reformist’ here, in principle, adverts to the political forces which have known by the name of the Eslah-talab in the administration of Seyyed Mohammad Khatami. Albeit some changes and structural reforms have taken place in other administrations and some other terms of the Islamic Republic, but because of the importance of Eslahat administration, and expectations of the people and groups from reformists, the article focuses on Khatami’s administration. Thus, the main question of the article includes a kind of pathology of the reformists that the article tries to answer by reviewing existing historical materials. A provisional and hypothetical answer points out a type of growing up Conservatism in Eslahat administration and Eslah-Talab forces, beginning at the end of the first administration of Khatami. consequently, elitism, semi-patriarchy and the lack of government-independent people's organizations, the lack of serious party activity, and the lack of interaction between the government and the forces and social institutions, along with some considerations at the level of Eslahat leadership, was able to shift the tendency and practice of Eslah-talabi to a Semi-conservatism, and led to the loss of dynamics and initial mobility of early Eslahat. The research has used a documentary (using available information) method for data collection, and the causal analysis (Qualitative) method to analyzing the collected data.
