Gulen Movement – Economic and Political Matters
The Gulen Movement is concerned with cultural values and beliefs. In its service projects it incorporates innovations in its established repertoires of action, introduces an element of novelty in its interactions, and establishes a new recombination of identities, methods of serving people, and demands. All these can in turn inspire other movements. The Gulen Movement’s concern with cultural and moral values is clearly demonstrated in its intercultural or educational activities and in its transnational altruistic services. It is also clearly seen in its understanding of civil society and pluralist participatory democracy and their compatibilities with Islam.
