Advisory Board Changes

Columbia University’s Journal of International Affairs is excited to announce three additions to our advisory board. As of October 2019, Merit E. Janow Kimberly Marten, and Yasmine Ergas, will be joining the Journal’s advisory board. Sadly, Professor Gary Sick, who has served on our advisory board since 1990, stepped down in October.

Merit E. Janow is the Dean of SIPA and a Professor of Professional Practical in International Economic Law and International Affairs at Columbia University. She is an internationally recognized expert in international trade and investment. She has extensive experience in academia, government and business, and has been deeply involved with the Asia-Pacific region for her entire life.

Kimberly Marten is the Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Political Science at Barnard College, and a faculty member of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) and the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University. She is also the Deputy Director for Development at the Harriman Institute.

Yasmine Ergas is the Director of the Specialization on Gender and Public Policy and a Lecturer in Discipline in International and Public Affairs at SIPA. She also directs the program in Gender and Human Rights at Columbia’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights.

Finally, we would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Professor Sick for his commitment to the Journal over the past 29 years. We wish him the best in all his future endeavors.
