The Institute for Political Science and European Affairs at the University of Cologne has made significant progress in the latest Shanghai Ranking (2023).

The ranking considers various indicators of research performance including publications in top journals, citation impact, per capita output and international collaboration. In Germany, the Institute has moved from 7th place in 2022 to 5th in 2023. Just five years ago, the Institute was at the 11th spot in Germany. This progress is noteworthy, especially given the larger departments the Institute is competing against.
