Is there any competition between participants, projects and institutions in the Gülen Movement?
Competition between projects and institutions is not restricted. Team work and competition, along with co-operation and consultation between service-projects, are encouraged; competition between individuals is not. Competition is not for self-advancement but is a motivational device to reach for the best and progress within the confines of the social and political order. When it concerns the schools, this can be seen as a competitive struggle for higher profit and better academic results; efficiency based on open competition, both within economic enterprises and educational institutions, is more important than solidarity with cronies or with any specific group of family members, relatives, and/or fellow villagers, etc.
