I will discuss recent results in Supersymmetric Large Extra Dimensions (SLED), a scenario which shows promise towards solving both the hierarchy and the cosmological constant problems. One of the issues which arises in this programme is a direct result of the need to use
codimension-2 branes, which can only consistently couple to gravity through a tension term in the action. This precludes us from asking certain interesting questions, such as what will happen when a phase transition occurs on the brane. In this talk, I will describe how these codim-2 branes can be modelled as codim-1, thus enabling us to work with more interesting brane actions.
