Biography - Dmitry Titov
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appointed Mr. Dmitry Titov (Russian Federation) as Assistant Secretary-General for Rule of Law and Security Institutions in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations in 2007.
Mr Titov has worked in peacekeeping since joining the United Nations in 1991, overseeing a number of operations, beginning with Angola and Mozambique. He has been Director of the Africa Division in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations since 1998. In that capacity, he helped set up all new peacekeeping operations in the region, and currently manages a total of seven ongoing operations. He is currently working on establishing new missions in Darfur, Chad and the Central African Republic.
He led the United Nations team in successful discussions earlier this year with the Government of the Sudan and the African Union regarding the establishment of the Darfur heavy support package and the African Union-United Nations hybrid operation.
Prior to joining the United Nations, Mr Titov served in his country's diplomatic service, working primarily on Security Council matters, as well as negotiations on Afghanistan, Cyprus, Cambodia and Central America.
Born in 1950, Mr Titov graduated from the Moscow State Institute (MGIMO) for international relations.
