Description



We’ve just legalised same-sex marriage in Australia, but where does the rest of the world stand? Join Bronwyn Winter and Maxime Forest to explore the ways in which same-sex marriage becomes institutionalised (or resisted) through legal and societal norms and practices globally.


Having just recently co-edited Palgrave’s book, Global Perspectives on Same Sex Marriage: A Neo Institutional Approach, Bronwyn Winter is coming together with Maxime Forest to discuss the different factors impacting on state adoption or refusal of same-sex marriage laws. Through a neo-institutionalist lens, the two investigate the diversity of state and civil society approaches to same-sex partnership recognition around the world.
