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

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
