Policy Brief 2018/01 Pacific Policing - RAMSI: Lessons, Impacts and Recommendations
This Policy Brief is in two parts. First, it summarises findings on five key questions that underpinned the research into the Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI), drawing directly on our interviews with many of RAMSI’s leadership figures, from both the policing and diplomatic sides, and from all periods of RAMSI’s existence starting in 2003 and continuing through to 2017.
Second, this paper makes a short set of recommendations aimed at capturing best practice from the involvement of Pacific Islands personnel in RAMSI, and at sustaining and consolidating the gains made for policing both in individual police forces in the Pacific, and for relationships between police forces in the region. These recommendations are largely ddressed to the AFP although some of them may have broader relevance
