هنرور: ذیلا طرح تحقیق ایشان نقل می شود که قرار شد نظرتان را هم در لینکی که آمد و باز هم می آید نسبت به موضوعیت آن در اختیار بگذارید، ولو بی نام و نشان. چرا من علاقه دارم که کمک کنیم؟ چون یک نفر از دیاری بیگانه که صله ی وثیقی با ما و کشور ما و بالاخص دولت و سیاست ما ندارد، از روی یک انگیزه ی ارزشمندی در راستای زدودن آن سیمای هیولای وحشت انگیز از ایران و اسلام و جمهوری اسلامی و تشیع است و انگیزه اش را اصلاح گفتمان غرب و انگاره ها هایش در باب تشیع و روحانیون تشیع ذکر می کند، ولو خودش شیعه نیست. دقت فرمودید؟ بعد هم قاعده این است که نسبت به تحقیقاتی که موضوعش ما و دغدغه های ماست، بی اعتنا نباشیم، هم از آنها بهره ببریم و هم به آنها مدد برسانیم، هم اگر دست داد موضوعات بایسته تر را به این گونه افراد که خود خواهان و مشتاق پیشنهادهایمانند،ارائه و با آنها طرح کنیم، اگر هم به هر سببی کج می روند با حضور علمی و فرهنگی تاثیر در اصلاح یا نقش در نقد داشته باشیم.
علی ای حال من تمامی پایان نامه ها و تحقیقاتی را که در حیطه ی "تشیع" و "روحانیت تشیع" و "علوم حوزوی" و "مشاهیر" مان به چشمم می خورند، سعی دارم یا پی گیر بشوم یا اطلاع رسانی کنم تا پی گرفته شوند. طبیعی است که نقل و معرفی به معنای تایید یا همفکری نیست و همین چند سطر بالاتر عرض کردم که یکی از کاربردهایش تشخیص کج اندیشی ها و خطاهایی است که پیش از انتشار می توان از آنها جلوگیری یا احیانا با کمک هایی از آنها پیش گیری نمود، بعدش هم می توان به گفت و گو یا نقد و مناقشه نشست. هدف من این است که همان نقش دیرینه ی "کمثل الحمار یحمل اسفارا" را در این امر ایفا کنم و بارم را به صاحبان و صالحان آن برسانم. از این به بعد تمرکز این یادداشت ها بر همین امر خواهد بود.
My Research Plan

The proposed dissertation is on the study of Islam and International Relations (IR) which will be entitled as “Islam and International Relations: Mutual Perceptions.” This was initially conceptualized with the aim of looking their conceived perceptions side by side, whether, how Islam is interpreted by IR scholars and vice versa. This has been the proponent’s quest to feasibly and scholarly presents Islam as a non-alien in the Western discourse of the IR field. For a very long time, the Muslim world was regarded as an outsider from the cultural pretext, normative and state relations of the West. Even during the reign of the Ottoman Empire, IR scholars excluded it as a subordinated non-ally or ally of major European powers.

The aims of the research are to show juxtaposed positions of mutual perceptions between Islam and IR based on conceived notions of sensitive conceptions, to eliminate deplorable and pejorative (mis)conceptions of IR scholars towards Islam and vice versa, and add or put Islam in the epitome of global discourse of international relations as a major causal factor that affects the behaviors of every actors (states, sub-state system, individuals, international and regional organizations, and multinational corporations) in the international community particularly those which have interest and peculiar relations to the Muslim world.

Turkey is a great place to undertake the course and field work(s) because of its strategic location, i.e., situated between East and West. The university has undeniable extensive resources, from its pool of its faculty members, department’s linkages and networking, thousands of academic resources from the library, subscription to a plethora of online journals and books, and a dedicated Middle East program.

The proponent may also seek help from the Foundation for Political, Economic and Social Research (SETA) and some Islamic research centers like the Islamic Studies Center (ISAM), Research Center for Islamic History, Art and Culture (IRCICA), Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation (ICYF-DC) located in Istanbul and the Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) in Ankara, wherein the last three organizations mentioned were funded by the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).

In addition, field works in neighboring countries of Turkey are also included in the plan, where the proponent may visit research centers of certain universities in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Iran. For the part of the IR discipline, an excessive amount of literature is provided by the university and of by online academic resources. Methods in the study of perception in political psychology will be a great help to exponentially decipher the relations between Islam and IR.

With the help of Prof. Necati Polat, the proposed outline stated below was materialized:

Islam and International Relations: Mutual Perceptions

A. International Relations’ perception of Islam
1. International Relations’ perception of religion
- It will talk about how IR scholars perceived religion generally.
2. International Relations’ perception of Islam
- This portion is exclusively dedicated to IR scholars’ perception towards Islam.
3. The Secularist Debate
- The debate that sparked between William Connolly and Talal Asad and other scholars.

B. Islam’s perception of International Relations
1. Islamic perception of International Relations (capital “IR” means the discipline itself)
- A discussion of the Islamic reflection on the main assumptions and notions of the discipline such as sovereignty, security, power, conflict and cooperation, diplomacy, human rights and etc.
2. Islamic perception of international relations (small caps “ir” means the practice itself)
- It will discuss intergovernmental and non-governmental practices, which is subdivided into two parts:
a. The objective interpretation, e.g., The Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah and the subjective interpretation, e.g., the concept of ijtihad among others.
b. The conceptions of Dar al-Islam, Dar al-Harb and Dar al-Ahd.

C. The Road Not Taken: Beyond Orientalism*
1. Islam and International Relations as part of the stories told from a Western viewpoint.
2. Stories from the Muslim world on international politics.

*Letter ”C” might be optional because in the paradigm of explaining the research plan the first two parts suffices the study.
