چکیده    In this study, we attempt to bring to light various organisational and implementational clashes relevant to the conceptualisation of language policies at national level, and the planning of local practices with regard to degree programmes, language journals and conferences in iranian higher education. we also prove that in its current status, the elt syllabus in iran, both at national and local levels, is a mixture of english language teaching, linguistics, and applied linguistics (a hotchpotch), which suffers from ‘regulatory barriers’. the paper asks for an in-depth language policy and planning (lpp) that would clarify the blurred boundaries between elt, applied linguistics, and linguistics in iranian higher education. this paper recommends that there should be a change regarding language-in-education policy and planning in iran; a change that would be able to address both theoretical and applied language problems at national and local levels. the attempt should begin with organising a clear and comprehensive language planning with regard to language programmes. this would mean carefully determining the scope and boundaries of the fields as elt, applied linguistics, and linguistics in the higher educational context. the subsequent challenge is to fix the problematic implementation of language programmes at the local level, considering language journals, conferences, and syllabuses. the findings presented in this work are useful for language policymakers to regulate language-in-education policy and planning in iran.
