How does the Gülen Movement educate people and contribute to society?
The Gülen Movement does not contaminate its cultural and educational purposes with political tactics or political ambitions.
Rather than dealing with daily politics, the Gülen Movement makes the latent and dormant power in Turkish people visible and makes it assume a shape in terms of educational, health and intercultural and interfaith services and institutions. It expresses issues peacefully and calls for change through taking responsibility and dealing with individuals and their needs, rather than with (or against) political and governmental positions.
As a by-product of the cultural emphasis of its work, it exposes the contradictions and the silences that the dominant apparatuses of the political system seek to camouflage.
The processes of modernizing institutions and making them proficient and effective have undoubtedly gained in strength through the services provided by Movement participants.
