Analytically, two stages exist: the phases of ‘legalization’ and ‘implementation’. In both these stages, I argue, the new norm usually encounters resistance. Therefore, negotiations are normal and crucial elements in both phases. Resistance against ‘unobjectionable’ norms exists for two main reasons. First, many different cultures and ideologies co-exist in a broad political context (like the European Union). The new norm is normally more highly prioritized in some of these than in others. Some states are ‘vanguards’, others are ‘laggards’.

Protests against discrimination of homosexuals have spread to demands for equal rights as Consolidating ‘unobjectionable’ norms 33 regards marriage and adoption. External events often act as precipitants in the diffusion and consolidation of norms.
