Phillip Ayoub, assistant professor of politics at Drexel University, discusses the recent history of transnational movement in Europe, focusing on the diffusion of the norms it champions and the overarching question of why, despite similar international pressures, the trajectories of socio-legal recognition for LGBT minorities are so different across states. Ayoub suggests new domestic preconditions and international pathways for socio-legal change.
