Gulen Movement

The Gulen Movement is a global network of volunteers, teachers, intellectuals, business people and students who are inspired by Fethullah Gulen’s philosophy based on dialogue and peaceful coexistence. 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.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Statement on Arrested Journalists in Turkey

The raids on Turkey’s top selling newspaper Zaman and prominent TV organization STV are profoundly disturbing to all of us who value democracy, tolerance and the role of a free press in safeguarding both.
