As a leading movement in contemporary Turkey with a universal educational and inter-faith agenda, the G?len movement aims to promote creative and positive relations between the West and the Muslim world and to articulate a critically constructive position on such issues as democracy, multi-culturalism, globalisation, and interfaith dialogue in the context of secular modernity.
Many countries in the predominantly Muslim world are in a time of transition and of opening to democratic development of which the so-called ?Arab Spring? has seen only the most recent and dramatic developments. Particularly against that background, there has been a developing interest in ?the Turkish model? of transition from authoritarianism to democracy.

The Muslim World and Politics in Transition includes chapters written by international scholars with expertise in relation to the contexts that it addresses. It discusses how the G?len movement has positioned itself and has sought to contribute within societies ? including the movement?s home country of Turkey ? in which Muslims are in the majority and Islam forms a major part of the cultural, religious and historical inheritance.

The movement and initiatives inspired by the Turkish Muslim scholar Fethullah G?len began in Turkey, but can now be found throughout the world, including in both Europe and in the 'Muslim world'. Bloomsbury has a companion volume edited by Paul Weller and Ihsan Yilmaz on European Muslims, Civility and Public Life: Perspectives on and From the Gulen Movement.
