Abstract: Decriminalization and diversion in Iran is a new crime control mechanism. Over-criminalization affects the efficiency and effectiveness of criminal process in preventing crimes. In Iran a number of actions and behaviour have been declared as crime and punishment has been provided. Iranian criminal policy is mainly based on Islamic canon. Alternative punishment, even under Islamic canon is found in many cases depending upon certain conditions. However, the process of decriminalization specially in the field of technical and administrative criminal law may result in effective criminal justice system. In the western countries and Europe decriminalization process is applicable even in those cases which according to the Islamic canon have been declared as crime and legal punishments have been provided. In Iran there is limited scope of decriminalization of crimes for which specific legal punishments have been provided under Islamic canon. Thus there is difference in approach towards decriminalization between the western criminal policy and Iranian criminal policy. Keeping in view these facts the topic of research was selected as Decriminalization in Iranian Criminal Policy: A Comparative Study with Western Criminal Justice System. What is Decriminalization? What are factors which regulate the criminalization and decriminalization policy? These questions require a brief discussion. Criminal Law which some times referred to as penal law is known as a body of rules and statutes that defines behaviour or conduct prohibited by the government in order to maintain public order or to provide public safety and welfare. It also contains punishment to be imposed for commission of such acts.
