FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - May 31, 2012 - Formosa Institute and Taiwan Association of Islamic Studies (TAIS) are organizing a conference titled "Hizmet Movement and the Thought and Teachings of Fethullah Gülen: Contributions to Multiculturalism and Global Peace" to be held on December 8-9 2012 and calling for papers.

Objective
The need for peaceful coexistence among the people of various cultures has long been recognized. By focusing on Fethullah Gülen's teachings, this conference aims to explore the appeal and impact of the Hizmet Movement's (a.k.a. Gülen Movement or Volunteers Movement) worldwide initiatives to help people respond creatively to the profound social changes everywhere. These changes make the world an increasingly integrated place, while its people have different, often divided identities. A particular focus will be the movement's long-established and ongoing projects dedicated to building trust and cooperativeness among the people of different faith traditions, and cultures. To explore the appeal, meaning, and impact of Fethullah Gülen's thoughts and the Hizmet movement as exemplifying approaches to education, dialogue, peace, and charity that transcend and mediate traditional distinctions between diverse cultures.
