Ep. 33: The Smallest Country to Ever Lead the Security Council

St. Vincent and the Grenadines, an island nation in the Caribbean, is the smallest country ever elected to the Security Council, and this month, it assumes the Council Presidency for the first time. There is nothing conventional about the country’s ambassador, Rhonda King. On this episode, she shares with us her government’s sometimes confusing foreign policy; how getting cancer inspired her to leave her accounting career and become a writer; and how most of her top staff at the UN mission are women. Caribbean expert Jacqueline Braveboy-Wagner, a professor at the City College of New York and the City University of New York, also shares her thoughts on St. Vincent's unique foreign policy.
