As a leading religious movement in contemporary Turkey with a universal educational and inter-faith agenda, the Gulen movement aims to promote creative and positive relations between the West and the Muslim world and to articulate a constructive position on such issues as democracy, multi-culturalism, globalisation, and inter-faith 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 rising amount of interest in "the Turkish model" of transition from authoritarianism to democracy. The Muslim World and Politics in Transition discusses how the Gulen movement has positioned itself and sought to contribute within societies - including its home country of Turkey - in which Islam forms a major part of the cultural, religious and historical inheritance and Muslims constitute the majority of their populations.
