Michel Blum, a 48-year-old Paris lawyer, has been elected president of the International Federation for the Rights of Man, replacing Daniel Mayer who was appointed last month president of France’s Constitutional Court. Blum has been active with the Federation since 1970 when he became vice president of its French section. The International Federation for the Rights of Man was created in 1922 and has since placed an active role in fighting anti-Semitism and racism throughout the world. It enjoys consultative status with a number of international organizations, including the United Nations and UNESCO. It regularly sends study missions to countries where human rights might be jeopardized.
