This report is a contribution to a growing body of research that seeks to better understand the illicit trade of gold (and to a lesser degree, diamonds) emanating from the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the role industry and state actors play (primarily in neighbouring countries and the United Arab Emirates) in facilitating this illegality. This report situates the illicit trade of gold and diamonds into an increasingly established and harmonized international framework of Due Diligence Guidance for conflict-affected minerals, such as the OECD due diligence or the ICGLR Regional Certification Mechanism for 3T minerals and gold.
