About Peace Islands Institute

(Video Duration: 7 mins. 35 secs.)

"Accept everyone who they are"
"Have a chair for everyone in our heart"

"Open your heart so wide like the ocean,
Become inspired with faith and love for others,
Offer a hand to those in trouble and be concerned about everyone."

These virtue quotes are from the Honorable Fethullah Gulen, Peace Islands Institute's source of inspiration and Honorary President, the recipient of the EastWest Institute 2011 Peace Award, 2008 Forbes Magazine's Top Intellectual, writer of over 60 books, and inspiration for millions of people from different walks of life.

Peace Islands Institute (PII) aspires to bring together the different points of view and voices with the spirit of mutual respect and acceptance in order to develop original and alternative perspectives on the social phenomena as they relate to our lives, present explanations as well as solutions, support the successful practices, and as such contribute to achieving the world peace by creating the realms of peaceful coexistence, or "peace islands".
