In 2007, CEPR launched its Policy Insight series. Policy Insights are tightly argued policy essays aimed at economists working in governments, international organizations, the private sector, academics and the media. The series encourages serious researchers to participate in the policy debate by reflecting on the policy implications that flow from their research, the research they read, and their general understanding of the world.
Prior to the Policy Insight series, CEPR provided a forum for the analysis of important policy issues through its Policy Papers (1999 to 2005) and its Occasional Papers (1988 to 1997).
The Policy Paper series was launched by CEPR in 1999 to provide a forum for the analysis of important policy issues by leading researchers. The Series aimed to identify key policy issues; apply the best and most up-to-date research to help understand these issues; and to explore the implications of this research for the design and conduct of policy. We published between four and six Policy Papers annually between 1999 and 2005. The Policy Papers Series replaced the Occasional Paper series previously published by the Centre.
