Impact Rankings 2021: 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 comparison across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.

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

The list includes 653 institutions from 82 countries/regions.
