orientations and basic goals of foreign policy have remained relatively stable and sustained, and on the other hand, objective and subjective changes in the tripartite domestic, foreign and psychology requires tactical and instrumental adaptation. Therefore, this research has been conducted with the aim of investigating the foreign policy approach of post-war defense states (between the years of 1989 to 2013), with the centerpiece of the values and norms of the Islamic Republic in three dimensions of anti-imperialism, dignity and Islamic convergence. The research method in this
paper is quantitative-quantitative. The statistical population of this research includes university professors and the use of interviews with foreign policy agents in different periods. In identifying the components, the final questionnaire was used to collect their views. After designing a native questionnaire, content validity was evaluated using experts' opinions and after several stages of the final version of the questionnaire, the questionnaire was distributed. Also, the Cranach’s alpha value was calculated by SPSS software to verify the reliability of the research and for all
variables it was somewhat higher than 0.7, indicating the validity of the questionnaire and the appropriate intellectual perception of the respondents of the content of the variables related to each construct. For data analysis, descriptive and inferential statistics including ANOVA test, Bonferoni post hoc test and t-test were used. The results of the study indicated a significant difference between the government's versatility in the index of irrigation and Islamic convergence, and the lack of significant difference in the index of dignity-making among governments.
