http://medya.zaman.com.tr/2008/11/17/robinson_phyllis.pdf

This paper from the conference “Islam in the Age of Global Challenges: Alternative Perspectives of the Gülen Movement“ (Gülen Conference, Washington, D.C., November 14-15, 2008) discusses education and the attainment of knowledge as an integral element for sustaining a global environment of right thinking, global ethics, and values. Three areas will be addressed using foundations found within the Fethullah Gülen Educational Movement in Turkey as one method for attaining this goal. Areas of discussion will include: 1) the Gülen model for teaching morals, ethics, and social values in educational and social environments, 2) the benefits derived from implementing the concept of global moral values, and 3) the anticipated possible and proven outcomes for student success. The Gϋlen Movement does offer a working and productive plan that establishes a means to improve social, educational, and religious global health in civil society by teaching moral and social values to youth.
