About Middle East Research and Information Project

Established in 1971, the Middle East Research and Information Project (MERIP) publishes a quarterly magazine and hosts a vibrant website. As its name implies, MERIP is a cornerstone of English-language research and information on the Middle East. Respected and used by journalists and scholars in Europe and the United States, MERIP provides information that is not colored by political, religious or cultural bias. In addition to its journal, Middle East Report, MERIP serves as an authority on Middle East issues, sponsoring lectures and interviews.

Interns learn about magazine production, media relations and nonprofit services. Interns assist editors with a variety of projects according to their interests and abilities, including research, proofreading, preparing website content, producing the journal and finding photographs.


Open to college students, recent college graduates and grad students.
