    This monograph titled Understanding Iran’s Political and Military Institutions: An Indian Perspective attempts to understand Iranian politics since the Islamic revolution, by taking a close look at the functioning of different institutions—and the interactions among them—which shape the Iranian polity. It also seeks to analyse in detail Iran’s domestic politics, its different institutions such as the Supreme Leader, the elected institutions (the President, the Majlis and the Assembly of Experts), non-elected institutions (Guardian Council and Expediency Council) and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). The monograph also tries to examine the conflicts/competitions among different political factions, and the foreign policy orientations as well as the priorities of different sections of the Iranian political and security establishments.
