NAIC’s ‘Journal of Insurance Regulation’ Celebrates 40th Anniversary

The National Association of Insurance Commissioners’ (NAIC) Journal of Insurance Regulation launched in 1982 to be a forum for high-quality research on major regulatory and public policy issues in insurance. The JIR is an open access, peer-reviewed publication that publishes legal, economic, and public policy analyses and empirical studies concerning all aspects of insurance regulation. Over the course of 40 years, the JIR has published over 1,000 articles on dozens of regulatory topics.

In celebration of the Journal's 40th Anniversary, the NAIC's Center for Insurance Policy and Research (CIPR) is hosting an event on Thursday, December 15th, in conjunction with the NAIC’s 2022 Fall National Meeting. The event will feature a presentation from 2021’s Kimball Award-winning authors, Elizabeth Plummer and William Wempe of Texas Christian University, and a panel discussion on the past and future of regulatory research with current and former JIR editors Kathleen McCullough, Cassandra Cole, Lars Powell, and Terri Vaughan, moderated by CIPR Director Jeff Czajkowski. A reception will follow. The event and reception are open to all National Meeting attendees.

About the National Association of Insurance Commissioners

As part of our state-based system of insurance regulation in the United States, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) provides expertise, data, and analysis for insurance commissioners to effectively regulate the industry and protect consumers. The U.S. standard-setting organization is governed by the chief insurance regulators from the 50 states, the District of Columbia and five U.S. territories. Through the NAIC, state insurance regulators establish standards and best practices, conduct peer reviews, and coordinate regulatory oversight. NAIC staff supports these efforts and represents the collective views of state regulators domestically and internationally.
