Desecuritisation through Hermeneutic Dialogue: the Gülen Movement in Turkey

This paper examines the dialogue activities of the Hizmet or Gülen Movement (GM)1 through the lenses of securitisation theory and Gadamer’s ‘hermeneutic dialogue’. As the theoretical framework of the study, we have adopted the concepts of ‘hermeneutic dialogue’ and ‘desecuritisation’ in tandem with one another as non-violent means of conflict resolution.
