This paper has been authored to study manner of Islamic Republic of Iran’s confrontation with the phenomenon of globalization, in particular during the reformist discourse (1997-2015). The methodology of the work is descriptive-analytical whose data has been gathered through library research method. The paper has resorted to Chantal Mouffe’s concept of the political to find appropriate answers to the following questions: What approaches did Islamic Revolution discourses follow in confrontation with globalization? What relationships have emerged out of these approaches? Chantal Mouffe’s theory encompasses three relationships vis-à-vis globalization. The hypothesis of this paper argues that reformist discourse had paved the ground for compatibility with and resistance of the Islamic Revolution ideology against cultural invasion by adopting an agonistic policy than a fully antagonistic policy, whereas previous discourses had adopted an antagonistic policy. Findings of the paper indicate that until before the reformist discourse, there was a pessimistic view toward globalization and the dominant approach was antagonistic. With the start of the reformation period, the antagonistic policy underwent drastic changes and was replaced with an agonistic policy. Seyyed Mohammad Khatami’s idea of “dialog of civilizations” played a key role in adoption of this policy.
