This research study in the summer of 2010 sought to learn if or how the Gülen-inspired institutions, that is, the fifteen schools of the Fezalar Educational Institutions and Sema Hospital, have been helping to bring stability and peace to northern Iraq since 1994. While quantitative information was gathered, the emphasis was on gathering qualitative information, such as stories about hope, forgiveness, healing, and new life.
