Chapter Summary

The history of Solomon Islands under British rule and protection can be traced back to the year 1877. In the Solomon Islands context, peoples of different cultures and background were brought together under British rule and made to live together as one people under one nation flying a common flag through the introduction of civil and democratic government and the rule of law. The ethnic conflict in Solomon Islands had a tiny beginning; one commentator described it in the news media as a 'storm in the teacup'. The role of the Police Force as the enforcement agency of the Government in the maintenance of the rule of law in Solomon Islands cannot be overstated. In the context of the ethnic conflict that plagued the country, it was the linchpin to an orderly society and a successful democratic government under the rule of law.
