PAC publishes A Guide to the Kimberley Process

Partnership Africa Canada has published A Guide to the Kimberley Process, the international initiative to eliminate conflict diamonds from the rough diamond trade.
 
The guide was produced by the Kimberley Process Civil Society Coalition, civil society organizations working on the issue of conflict diamonds.
 
The guide aims to give an introduction to the Kimberley Process (KP) for civil society and other interested stakeholders. It provides an introduction to the history, operations and structure of the KP, as well as an overview of those involved. It also includes the views of civil society on the shortcomings of the KP and necessary improvements. 
 
It is our hope that this guide will assist all interested parties - civil society organizations, governments and the diamond industry, as well as students, the media and "the general public - to understand this initiative and the challenges it faces."
