In 2018, the European Union holds the Chairmanship of the Kimberley Process, a global partnership which brings together governments, industry and civil society - the tripartite structure - with the aim to eliminate the trade in so-called conflict diamonds worldwide. Throughout the year, the EU will strive to ensure that the process remains a fitting tool for conflict prevention in our changing world. To modernise the Kimberley Process, the EU aims to strengthen the tripartite structure, reinforce the implementation of the Kimberley Process in particular through regional cooperation, and supporting capacity building.
