The process of policy making has an important role in the success of the public policies. One of the groups that benefit most from the public policies is elites who do not have an active contribution in the process. Accordingly, this research aims to identify the challenges in this regard. The mixed method research design uses qualitative data from the semi-structured interviews with 26 experts. The data are, then, content-analyzed and grouped into 7 primary concepts and 9 major categories. In the quantitative analysis, a questionnaire based on 20 experts' opinion were developed for constructing the structural-interpretive model. The findings show that the most significant challenges are "weak cultural of tolerating others and encouraging interaction", "lack of meritocracy", and "extreme politicization in governance".
