Summary In 2003, Australia led a modest intervention into Solomon Islands in response to both growing civil unrest and an escalating economic crisis. New Zealand and several Pacific Island countries contributed to this response, which became known as Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands, or RAMSI. With the mission due to withdraw in 2017, this article explores whether there are indicators that the country is likely to return to civil unrest through assessing whether firearms and other weapons are again being sourced and stockpiled, and considers what else could be done for Australia and Solomon Islands to move beyond RAMSI and into a new phase of peaceful cooperation.
