Impact Rankings 2020: peace, justice and strong institutions

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach and stewardship.

This table on SDG 16 – peace, justice and strong institutions measures universities’ research on law and international relations, their participation as advisers for government and their policies on academic freedom.

The list includes 453 universities from 75 countries.
