To date, topics have ranged from the role of porn in the formation of sexual identities in Eastern Europe to the negotiations of same-sex relationships in the Middle East as well as the impact of international organizations in combatting homophobia in North and East Africa. CODW has also examined policy areas including immigration, asylum, and the Defense of Marriage Act in the United States and its impact on binational couples.
