How and to whom are the Gülen-inspired institutions accountable?
There is no community-vs.-organization or organization-vs.-community attitude.
However, since the various SMOs of the Movement grow and consolidate in widely varying environments, this necessitates division of labor, a variety of different models and specialization in function with more specific definition of roles and norms. Participants in the Gülen Movement modify SMOs in secondary details in response to stimuli and limits deriving from peculiarities in the local environment where they operate. However, the SMOs are all accountable to the local authorities (the State) and to their own official inspectors, and comply with the state and international law. This quality of openness, visibility and accountability to the System legitimates the SMOs.
