Eaton 202

Tufts Middle East Research Group (MERG) (formerly NIMEP) is a collaborative research group studying the  Middle East and North Africa. MERG is a non-polemical,  student think-tank and outreach initiative devoted to exploring progressive solutions to historic and emerging conflicts in the Middle East.

MERG's annual fact finding trip provides an opportunity to conduct independent research in the MENA region.  Past research trips have been to Egypt, Iraqi Kurdistan, Israel/Palestine, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates.

The annual fact finding trip this year will be to Cyprus, where the Middle East meets Europe.

Open to all undergraduate and graduate students who have taken or will be taking a research methods class by next semester are eligible to apply. The purpose of the trip is to gather information on a topic of your choice in preparation for writing an independent research paper related to Cyprus.

Come to the GIM on Wed, Nov 6th at 6PM to learn more about the trip from current and former members who previously participated in MERG’s annual fact-finding trip.
