History and profile
MERIP began in 1971 by releasing an irregularly scheduled six-page newsletter called the MERIP Reports. In 1973, the group began releasing the Reports on a scheduled basis.
In its online version, the Middle East Report is made available in a mixed access mode, with some open access articles and others requiring a paid subscription. The subscription covers both online and print editions.
US foreign policy exacerbates the disastrous state of affairs in the contemporary Middle East. Although the political contours of the world have changed radically since the collapse of the USSR and the Gulf War of 1991, US goals in the region have remained remarkable consistent: to control the flow of oil, to prevent the growth of Arab nationalist and leftist movements and to protect Israel.
The Middle East Report is available in the United States, Europe, the Middle East and worldwide via the internet. According to JSTOR, The Middle East Report "is the foremost U.S. magazine of critical analysis on the Middle East", with 25,000 US and global readers and more than 700 educational and institutional subscriptions.
