It’s been almost 14 years from the time when Iran’s nuclear program was set forth in the international organs including IAEA and the United Nations Security Council and it is one of the most important internal problems for Iran and international environment. The main question of this essay is the impact of the nuclear developments on the security of the Islamic Republic of Iran. To answer this question from the theoretical viewpoint the realist approach to security was used in order to find the parameters of security and to provide the parameters of national security as well. Besides the SWOT method was used to analyze the data and the TOPSIS method was used too. On the basis of the SWOT method we studied the impact of the nuclear developments on the security by surveying four tests of internal points of strength and weakness and international opportunities and threats. Therefore the hypothesis of the present research is that there is a significant relationship between the points of weaknesses and the threats of Iran’s nuclear developments and the decrease of the level of national security. In the end on the basis of the hypothesis of the present research if the Islamic Republic of Iran reduces the internal points of weaknesses and encounters the international threats in the nuclear case in a correct and reasonable way it will be able to improve its security or on the contrary through lack of efficiency in these areas the country’s security would be endangered. The present research is done by using Delphi technique on the basis of completing a questionnaire by 36 persons of experts and elites of International Relations and nuclear negotiations.
