Made in Taiwan: Alternative Global Pathways to Marriage Equality

Join Outlaws and APALSA for a lunch presentation by Stewart Chang on Thursday, September 14th.

Stewart's talk will comparatively analyze the same-sex marriage equality movements in Taiwan, South Africa, and the United States.  Stewart will outline the structural mechanisms that led Taiwan to become the first Asian nation to legalize same-sex marriage, draw comparisons to how marriage equality was similarly effected through a delayed imposition of a court order in South Africa to allow the legislature an opportunity rectify the law, and consider how these approaches provide equally viable and more inclusive alternatives to the incrementalist strategy employed by gay rights activists in the United States. Stewart is Stewart an Associate Professor of Law and the Director of the Center for International and Comparative Law at Whittier Law School.
