Juliane Kippenberg of Human Rights Watch discusses the impact the pandemic has had on the jewelry trade’s responsible sourcing practices.

The diamond and jewelry industry has made important strides in its responsible sourcing practices, but it cannot become complacent, a recent report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) found. Besides, Covid-19 has brought new challenges that affect all levels of the distribution chain.

In episode 37 of the Rapaport Diamond Podcast, Juliane Kippenberg, associate director of the Children’s Rights Division at HRW and co-author of the report, explains its findings and the implications for the trade.
