Document Type : Research Article (International Relation)


MA Student of Islamic Studies and Political Sciences at Imam Sadiq (A.S.) University


The question of the division of countries in today's international system and its adaptation to the types of assets in Shi'a International Relations jurisprudence are among the questions that are dealt with in International Relations Jurisprudence. In the present article, the authors have discussed the idea that it is possible to reconcile jurisprudence with today's international system. For this purpose, in the first step based on the library and documentary method, the required information was collected and then using content analysis method to identify the conceptual system of the Shiites in Shi'a jurisprudence. The result of the discussion suggests that the jurisprudential view of Islamic and non-Islamic lands is not only obsolete but also in the jurisprudential works of jurists of the Islamic Revolution and jurisprudents of this period, in their jurisprudential view of international relations, have adhered to the same jurisprudential divisions of the previous jurists and have attempted to present jurisprudential rulings in the field of international relations under these divisions.
