UN. Office for Special Political Affairs

Histoire administrative

Up to the late 1980s, peacekeeping missions were operated by six officials in the United Nations Office of Special Political Affairs. This office was created by Dag Hammarskjöld in response to the Cold War stalemates occurring in the Secretariat. Originally, the office had both an American and a Soviet official as equals. They took on projects that were not specifically under the mandate of the Secretariat, like conflict control. For the first three years (1955-1957), the office was referred to as the Office of Under-Secretaries without Department. The first Under-Secretaries-General were Ralph J. Bunche (1955-1970) and Ilya S. Tchernychev (1955-1956), followed by Anatoly F. Dobrynin (1957), Sir Humphery Trevelyan (1958), C.V. Narasimhan (1959-1961), Omar Loutfi (1962), Dragoslav Protitch (1963-1964), Jose Rolz-Bennett (1965-1970), Roberto E. Guyer (1971-1978), Brian E. Urquhart (1972-1985) (see also AG-023), Javier Perez (1979-1980), Diego Cordovez (1981-1988), and Marrack I. Goulding (1986-1991).
