A Civilian Response to Ethno-Religious Conflict

ISBN: 9781597840255 Category:

The Gulen Movement in Southeast Turkey


This extensive analysis of the Mardin conflict in southeast Turkey considers the likelihood that socioreligious movements, such as the popular Gulen movement, could effect positive change in ethnoreligious disputes, even those decades old. By focusing specifically on how Gulen volunteers helped minimize the support of terrorist organizations in Anatolia, this guide illustrates how potent nonpolitical solutions to ethnic conflict can be.
Mehmet Kalyoncu is a journalist and international analyst.
