Tufts Middle East Research Group (MERG) formerly NIMEP or New Initiative to Middle East Peace 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 provides a forum for producing dialogue, research, and nuanced explorations of the region.

MERG works to foster understanding of the MENA region in the Tufts community through hosting events and bringing experts to campus.

MERG's annual research 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.

MERG also publishes the online journal, Insights, a research publication featuring the original work of Tufts students.
