A Model Pacific Solution?
The paper A Model Pacific Solution? A Study of the Deployment of the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands examines the early stages of the multinational deployment of police, military and other personnel to Solomon Islands. The ongoing deployment is led by the police, with the military in close support. The paper addresses the legal and operational consequences of brining together a large multinational, multi-disciplinary force at short notice to conduct a policing operation. The author also examines the unique legal arrangements underpinning the deployment and considers why they were so critical to its success. He concludes by asking whether adopting a similar approach in other deployments would enable the replication of the success enjoyed by the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands.
