SOCIOTECHNICAL TRANSITIONS IN DEVELOPING WORLD

Explaining the Pathway of Iran’s Defence Industry

Sepehr GHAZINOORY, Javad VAZIRI

This paper tries to provide a socio-technical interpretation of Iran’s defence industry transition over the past few decades. Focusing on anti-tank industries, we will elaborate on the threefold periods of transition in Iran’s defence industry to a multi-level system by means of Bourdieu’s triple levels of inquiry. The results indicate that the balance and coordination between the technical capital and the symbolic capital of engineers is the most important factor in the defence industry.

Keywords

Multi-Level Perspective; Defence Industry of Iran; Anti-Tank Missile; Habitus; Sociotechnical Transition.
