Components of the State’s Inefficiency in Iran (2005-2013)
Dr. Ghaffari Masoud, Afsaneh Egdar (M.A)

This paper takes the three main indicators of Non-development-oriented states to be: the lack of an efficient bureaucratic system; rising consumption costs; and the lack of an effective relationship with the international community. Accordingly, the paper has looked into instances of such indicators in the ninth and tenth administrations which were in office from 2005 to 2013 in Iran. The existence of an unpredictable and unsystematic mechanism in the state is a sign of bureaucratic inefficiency. A rise in public funding in proportion to infrastructure and development funding will hamper the process of development. Given the high level of global communications, one prerequisite for development is to have an effective relationship with the international community in line with national interests. Based on surveys done for the research, it can be concluded that the 9th and 10th state in Iran could be categorized among Non-Developmental States.
