Blum worked with the United Nations as a consultant and expert
witness in the landmark trial U.N. vs. General Pavle Strugar.
This case created new international guidelines for the assessment of
competency to stand trial.
Dr. Blum has also educated judges at the Court of
Bosnia and Herzegovina, one of the world's busiest war crimes
tribunals, in a training underwritten by the U.S. State
Department. The training included assessment of diminished
capacity in witnesses and defendants, and evaluation of claims of
excessive manipulation or coercion by soldiers.
