Religion as a Soft Power in the Iranian Foreign Policy

European Researcher. Series A, 2019, 10(3): 134-140.
DOI: 10.13187/er.2019.3.134CrossRef

In recent decades, many countries have tended to use soft power as an influential tool in their foreign policies. A power that emphasizes the use of tools to create attractiveness for influencing and increasing authority in other countries. In the era of interdependence, the Islamic Republic of Iran is aware of the importance of soft power. Therefore, it takes the maximum advantage of using tools such as religion, culture and ideology in order to exercise its power over the regional countries. Specifically, the ideology of Islamic Revolution is one of the key tools that Iran uses to influence its neighboring countries. After the Islamic Revolution, Iran has been in search of new tools in order to promote its position in the Middle East; hence, it has attempted to transform every single tool as a form of soft power in order to speed up the process. In this paper, we tried to investigate the role of soft power and religion in Iran’s current position in the region. Our findings indicate that the usage of soft power has a huge impact on the current position of Iran. Particularly, religion – as a key tool of soft power – has played an important role in consolidating and promoting the regional status of the country. In the field of culture and religion, Iran has many commonalties with the regional counties. The usage of concepts such as; denial of foreign domination, Islamic justice and the unification of religion and politics has had a big impact on its usage of soft power. Therefore, Iran has used soft power as a key tool in its foreign policy in order to expand its influence in the region.

Syria Policy of Russia as a Permanent Member of the United Nations Security Council

European Researcher. Series A, 2019, 10(3): 156-162.
DOI: 10.13187/er.2019.3.156CrossRef

This paper investigates the historical roots, cooperation and interests of Russia and Syria and their reflections to the world. In this paper, relations between Russia and Syria are considered as the period after the establishment of both the Soviet Union period and the Russian Federation. Relations between Russia and Syria have started to develop successfully since the early days of the USSR. Topics discussed in the thesis are the beginning of the Egyptian and Tunisian uprisings called the Arab Spring and the rise of this uprising to Syria in 2011. In addition the policies of the United Nations about these uprisings and the policies of Russia as the permanent member of the Security Council are presented. The main argument of this paper is that the main reasons of the Syrian crisis that reverberate all over the world, the source of the power of Assad, the role of Russia in the region and the interests cannot be ignored. Moreover, paper tries to explain these issues by shedding light from the theoretical window presented by realism. After the disintegration of the USSR, the traces of chaos and frustration experienced by Russia were largely erased during the period of Vladimir Putin. In the period of Putin, Russia's trade increased with increasing oil and gas revenues; living standard of the people has risen. Russia's growing economic power has drawn new horizons for foreign policy and Russia has pursued foreign policy based on power. The main reason for his support for the Assad regime is both economic and political; it tries to protect the region's power especially against the West. At the same time, with the Syrian Crisis of 2015, Russia has now shown that it can intervene as a global power in matters of its own interest not only in its own region, but in any part of the world.

The Role of Society in Law Enforcement Related to the Eradication of Corruption Crimes

European Researcher. Series A, 2019, 10(3): 187-195.
DOI: 10.13187/er.2019.3.187CrossRef

In eradicating corruption crimes, society’s aspirations are needed and have an important role as social control. Therefore, it is necessary to intensify efforts to prevent and eradicate corruption while upholding human rights and the interests of society. This research was conducted using qualitative descriptive methods. In legal research, it generally applies statute approach, case approach, historical approach, comparative approach, and conceptual approach. Based on Law No. 20 of 2001 concerning Amendments to Law No. 31 of 1999 concerning the Eradication of Corruption Crimes, corruption was expressly formulated as formal crime. It means that even though the results of corruption have been returned to the state, the perpetrators of corruption will still be brought to justice and the judicial process applies the burden of reverse proof that is limited or balanced. It turns out that, in this Law, the defendant’s statement is not a strong evidence because it only becomes a supporting tool to the existing evidence. This provision has become a weakness in eradicating corruption crimes because the position of the defendant’s strong statement will be a valid evidence and a legal basis for the judge to impose a criminal sentence.

The survey results were presented within the 5 categories: Knowledge of GHP, Energy Saving, Water Saving, Recycling & Waste Disposal and Hygienic & Re-Use Program. We found decent majority of environmental attributes in lux hotels. Therefore, energy saving is most preferred, while the water saving and recycling are the least preferred. However, the lux hotels’ participation in green practices is somewhat neutral mostly due to the lack of governmental support. The research provided green concept for hoteliers and the recommendations for sustainable hospitality.
