How Do Faith-Based Movements Fit Into Global Civil Society? The Case of the Gülen/Hizmet Movement
The Transnational NGO Initiative invites you to a talk on September 22 by Dr. Y. Alp Aslandogan, the President of the Alliance for Shared Values, a non-profit serving as the umbrella organization for the dialogue and cultural organizations associated with the Gülen/Hizmet Movement in the United States.
The Hizmet movement was born in Turkey in the mid-1970s as a small faith-based community around the influential preacher Fethullah Gulen. It is now a transnational movement with health, education and village rebuilding projects in over a 150 countries. While the vast majority of its followers remain Turkish Muslims, the number of non-Turkish and non-Muslim participants is increasing steadily. Dr. Aslandogan will talk about the transnational activities of the movement, with a focus on organizational structures including both social and institutional leadership, NGO governance and effectiveness.
Open to the Public
Sponsored by the Turkish Cultural Center of Syracuse and the Transnational NGO Initiative at the Moynihan Institute of Global Affairs
