Professor Jacqueline Braveboy-Wagner is a specialist in foreign policy, diplomacy and development, particularly with respect to small states (and specifically Caribbean states) as well as the nations of the global south in general. Prof. Braveboy-Wagner taught at Bowling Green State University in Ohio before coming to CUNY as an assistant professor, rising to full professor in 1991-2. Apart from her scholarly work (see Publications below), she was the first Caribbean woman to serve as president of the Caribbean Studies Association (1992-3), the main association for scholars interested in the Caribbean region.

From 1995 to 2010, she served as the United Nations-NGO representative of the International Studies Association (www.isanet.org).

In 2011, she was awarded the Ladd Hollist award for significant service to the association at the annual ISA convention. She then went on to found the Global South Caucus of the ISA (GSCIS) in 2012, a grouping aimed at bringing often-marginalized African, Asian (including Central Asian) and Latin American scholars and scholarship into the mainstream of IR. She served as the Chair of the GSCIS until 2015 and now serves as chair of the Advisory Committee devoted to promoting recruitment and outreach to, the various world regions.
