about

The concept of UN peacekeeping has had to evolve and change to meet the challenges of contemporary sources of conflict. From a practical, operational and legal perspective, Murphy examines the problems faced by UN peacekeeping operations. Three case studies (Lebanon, Somalia and Kosovo) are used to demonstrate the problems associated with the command and control of UN forces, the use of force and rules of engagement, and the implementation of international human rights and humanitarian law by such forces.

Editorial Reviews

"The publication of Ray Murphy's UN Peacekeeping in Lebanon, Somalia and Kosovo is timely.......Murphy's first-hand experience as a peacekeeper in UNIFIL is clearly an added value for the book.......There are few if any books that combine this with a legal analysis of peacekeeping....... This lends not only credibility but also some interesting anecdotes........The book's overall assessment of U.N. peacekeeping is critical but hopeful." -Marten Zwanenburg, Leiden University
