It does this by bringing people together through discussion forums, courses, capacity-building publications, and outreach. It operates in Ljubljana. It was founded by Turkish intellectuals inspired by the teachings and example of Muslim scholar and peace advocate Fethullah Gülen. The Ljubljana Dialogue Society is not a religious or ethnic organization. It aims to facilitate dialogue on a whole range of social issues, regardless of any particular faith or religion. It stands for democracy, human rights, the non-instrumentalization of religion in politics, equality, and freedom of speech.
