This chapter underlines the Janus-faced nature of religious nonstate actors' involvement in the provision and protection of human welfare, rights, and freedoms. In doing so, it draws on a critical examination of the case of Turkey, supported by a content analysis of four religious and two secular newspapers and interviews with Islamic nonstate actors. This exercise helps us to better understand both the multifaceted impact of religious and nonreligious actors on human security and the complex concept of human security itself.

Keywords:   religious nonstate actors, human welfare, human rights, freedom, Turkey, human security
