Gerald Knaus was invited to a workshop in Cappadocia organized by the Worldbank's Turkey Country Team. He spoke on "Islamic Calvinism" in a session on "Local Development in Central Anatolia with a Focus on Cultural Heritage". In his presentation he outlined ESI's findings on economic and social changes in the Kayseri region and their wider implication for European notions about the compatibility of Islam and modernity.
