  • The Golden Generation: Islam,
  • Inspiration,
  • Ethical techniques of binding within the Gülen Movement. 
  • Keywords: Islam - ethical techniques and self-discipline - 
  • Islam in European context - Islam in Turkish and Kurdish context


The aim of this study is to explore the development of a new type of Muslim subjectivity within the Gülen movement. The proposed research aims to investigate the various techniques of disciplining a generation of committed young men and women who combine a strict adherence to Muslim identity and morality with the realities of everyday life and an active engagement in public activities in secular society. The research addresses the relation between the formation of a new type of Muslim subject and 'Gülen Theology/Doctrine'. The mobilizing and disciplining of its members, the formation of a new type of Muslim, and the methods and techniques that are put into practice for this purpose will be exposed.
