Blood Diamonds: Risk, Regulation, and the Kimberley Process |

Blood Diamonds: Risk, Regulation, and the Kimberley Process

Synopsis:

The transnational campaign against conflict diamonds threatened to undermine the market for diamonds and impose new sanctions on the diamond trade. To preserve markets and foster peace, business, governments, and activists negotiated the Kimberley Process Certification Scheme to regulate the trade in rough diamonds. This innovation in global governance highlights both the power of transnational activism, and the common interest of industry and government in re-establishing what amounts to a new diamond cartel based on “clean” diamonds.
