While the debate that has followed the intervention by the Regional Assistance Mission to the Solomon Islands (RAMSI) has centered on the suitability of the failed state label to Solomon Islands, I argue that this debate is misdirected because the concept of state failure itself is accepted uncritically.

The Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI), also known as Operation Helpem Fren and Operation Anode, was created in 2003 in response to a request for international aid by the Governor-General of Solomon Islands. Helpem Fren means "help a friend" in Solomon Islands Pidgin. The mission officially ended on 30 June 2017.

The Australian-led Regional Assistance Mission to Solomon Islands (RAMSI) continues to enjoy high levels of approval amongst Solomon Islanders. Since civil tension disrupted Solomon Islands between 1998 and 2003, the Arosi of Makira have elaborated discourses according to which their island contains a secret and preternaturally powerful subterranean army base. These discourses have clear antecedents in Maasina Rule, a post-World War II socio-political movement sometimes analysed as a cargo cult. Australia's intervention in Solomon Islands can be said to represent the ‘local North’ as it seeks to impose a liberal peace over a ‘deviant’ and ‘unruly’ neighbour.

Using the case of Solomon Islands, this book raises fundamental questions about the nature of 'cooperative intervention' as a vehicle for state building, asking whether it should be construed as a mainly technical endeavour or whether it is unavoidably a political undertaking with political consequences. The social crisis that ravaged Solomon Islands from 1998 to 2003 has taught us many lessons. Rainbows across the mountains’ symbolises a genuine wish by Solomon Islanders to rebuild their country with new insights and understanding.

This volume charts the key developments in a little-known conflict, documenting events from the emergence of ethnic tensions on the island of Guadalcanal in 1998 to the Townsville Peace Process. Guadalcanal, home of Honiara, the national capital, has been a favourite destination for the country's internal migrants, particularly from the densely populated island of Malaita. Ethnic tensions between locals and Malaitan settlers have built up over many years and there has also been deliberate manipulation of perceived ethnic differences by political interests threatened by the election of the reformist Ulufa'alu government in 1997. These tensions escalated dramatically in 1998. Militant Guadalcanal groups (now called the Istabu Freedom Movement, IFM) embarked on a violent campaign of intimidation against settlers from Malaita. In response the Malaita Eagle Force (MEF) was formed, and its militants forced the closure of major national investment projects on Guadalcanal. On 5 June 2000, MEF militants, together with disaffected police officers, seized control of key installations in Honiara, including the national armoury. Prime Minister Ulufa'alu was forced to resign and was replaced by Manasseh Sogavare, who was believed to be more sympathetic to the MEF. The legitimacy of the new government thus remains contentious. The ethnic tensions have by no means been resolved, and could easily re-erupt if the quality of governance and the economy deteriorate further.
