Introduction by Bonnie Joy Kaslan, Honarary Consul General, the Republic of Turkey, San Francisco Bay Area

Dr. Aslandogan will focus on how the Turkish experience can be a guide to emerging democracies in the Middle East. He will also discuss how to prevent extremism and violence in the region. Aslandogan is inspired by the work of Fethullah Gülen, a controversial Muslim scholar whose followers promote interfaith cooperation and improving communities through service.
