IRLS413 American Military Economic Sanctions Kimberely Process Discussion

1.)

In your own words, what are the three (3) most important lessons that

the international community should have learned about economic sanctions

from the Kimberley Process experience? Explain why each of the three

lessons are important.

2.) How would you respond to claims by critics that the Kimberley

Process is not a good model for other economic sanctions programs? The

critics base their claims on: (a) the nature of Sierra Leone – a small

country in a region of the world where the major powers had few national

interests at stake; (b) the nature of the diamond trade which is

dominated by a small number of countries; and (b) the nature of the

demand for diamonds – public opinion in the West supported restrictions

on blood diamonds, something that might not be the case for non-luxury

commodities like oil, timber and industrial minerals, which are also

illegally exported by rebel groups in other countries.
