The first edition was published in 2010 and looked at fiscal consequences of the financial crisis. Since then, topics such as the housing market, the Nordic welfare model, income inequality, labour market integration, and many more have been presented.
Each editor runs the review for a period of three years, and previous editors include prominent researchers such as Lars Calmfors and Torben Andersen. The current editor, Harry Flam, was previously the Chair of the Swedish Fiscal Policy Council.
NEPR gets it funding from the Nordic Council of Ministers for Finance through the Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Finance (EK-FINANS). Nordregio acts as administrative body and project coordinator since 2015.
Besides the review itself, the project has two events per year: A peer-review conference in the autumn when the draft articles are presented and discussed as well as a more policy-oriented launch event during the spring.
