The Gülen Movement

In the contemporary world, Muslim communities are undergoing radical social, economic, political and intellectual change. The ideas of Fethullah Gülen – a Turkish Muslim scholar, author and education activist – initiated a social phenomenon called the Gülen movement. Originating in Turkey but becoming increasingly transnational, the Gülen movement has a universal educational and interfaith agenda that aims to promote creative and positive relations between the Muslim world and the West, and to make a constructive contribution to the dialogue of civilizations, the reconciliation of science and religion, global education initiatives, democracy, and religious plurality.
