[PDF] Corporate Social Responsibility in the Diamond Mining Industry in Botswana

This study of corporate social responsibility in the diamond mining industry in Botswana deals with the nature of mining investment in Botswana, the conflict of interest between the government and De Beers, and the impact of mining on indigenous peoples...As long as mining houses disregard their duty to consider the interests of all stakeholders and get away with negative environmental and social impacts such as damaged eco-systems and dispossessed and disempowered communities the road to sustainable development will be long and arduous.
