The Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Dr Naledi Pandor, congratulated Zane Dangor on the appointment of the Director General of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO).
Mr Dangor takes up the position of Director General today, 01 April 2022.
Mr Dangor has served as Special Advisor to the current and former Minister of International Relations and Cooperation.
Prior to joining DIRCO, he served as Interim Representative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) for the African Union (AU) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA).
Prior to that position, Mr. Dangor served as Director General of the Ministry of Social Development, having been Deputy Director General where he worked for more than 12 years.
Mr Dangor has extensive experience in the human rights field, specializing in transitional justice issues.
He has worked on human rights and development both nationally and internationally in various civil society organizations. For more than a decade he was the Executive Director of the Development Resource Center.
He holds two Masters degrees – Masters in International Law, and Masters in Public Management and Development both from the University of the Witwatersrand. He has also been widely published in the field of international relations.
The Minister congratulated Mr Dangor on his new position, and has no doubt that he will start working as he has been a part of the department and is familiar with the challenges facing the department.
Top-ranking among the issues that Minister Pandor said he hoped Dangor would prioritize was for the department to receive a clean audit – something the Department had missed for several years.
“I congratulate Pak Dangor as Director General of the Department of International Relations and Cooperation,” said Minister Pandor.
