Déjà Vu : diamond industry still failing to deliver on promises : Summary of UK and US Results of Global Witness and Amnesty International Survey

, Index number: POL 34/008/2004

This report presents the results of Global Witness and Amnesty International's survey into the diamond jewellery retail sector's implementation of self-regulation to support the Kimberley Process, the international diamond certification scheme launched to combat the trade in conflict diamonds. While some progress has been made since March 2004, the results of the survey overall show that some major players in the diamond jewellery retail sector continue to fall short on implementing basic measures of the self-regulation. In order to be effective the self-regulation should move beyond being voluntary and the report contains recommendations towards this.
