Abstract:

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps IRGC is often referred to in Western press but still, little is known about these uniformed zealots. This thesis is an attempt to show that the IRGC is not a haphazard army but one that is striving to organize while, at the same time, attempting to deal with Irans internal security, as well as external threats.
