Examines the critical role of credibility in successful peacekeeping operations.

"Newby provides a detailed picture of the everyday operations of possibly the most contested and dangerous peacekeeping mission on earth—UNIFIL on the Lebanon—Israel border. She shows that in a context in which its legitimacy is bitterly contested, UNIFIL relies on a carefully maintained credibility among all parties to ensure peace along that volatile border. This book is essential reading for those interested in peacekeeping, international security, and the effectiveness of institutions in an increasingly fractious world."—Michael Wesley, Australian National University

"How does the United Nations mission in Lebanon operate on the ground? How can peacekeepers build credibility? Why does it matter? These questions are both important and under-explored. Vanessa Newby answers them through an effective blend of thought-provoking theoretical insights and engaging anecdotes."—Séverine Autesserre, author of Peaceland: Conflict Resolution and the Everyday Politics of International Intervention

"This book has huge value in contributing to an increasingly utilized—and for me a very productive—trend connecting the local to the international by borrowing from both anthropological observations as well as more conventional IR literature."—Karim Makdisi, associate professor of political studies, American University of Beirut
