Abstract

the stage when formal executive actions and target groups align with policy goals and strategies. Implementation starts with policy goals or legitimate goals and then the implementation processes are followed in a relatively linear manner, while some policies seem contradictory or ambiguous. Contradiction and ambiguity are two important features in the policy implementation process and the Matland framework is based on the analysis of these two concepts. In this article, in order to understand and analyze the executive policy of the Islamic Republic of Iran since 1989, the framework of implementing the Matland policy has been used. The general approach of this paper is to be inspired by elements of the Matland framework to understand the dynamics between different implementation methods in different governments.
