The movement originated in Turkey in the late 1970s as local educational initiatives and moved on to open schools in 110 countries globally, so called "Gulen Schools". This section of our website provides scholarly papers written on different aspects of the Gulen Movement as a social phenomenon. You can also read the writings by Fethullah Gulen from here.
