The 1987 Ice Hockey World Championships was the 52nd such event hosted by the International Ice Hockey Federation. It was also the 63rd ice hockey European Championships. Teams representing 24 countries participated in four levels of competition.

In the Division A Championship held April 17 to May 3 in Vienna, Austria, each team played each other once in the preliminary round. The four best placed teams then played each other once in a championship round and, in contrast to previous tournaments, the first round of results were not counted. Sweden won the gold medal for the fourth time and the Soviet Union won their 25th European title. In the European Championships, only the games between European teams counted. Switzerland was demoted to Division B.

In the Division B competition, Poland was promoted to the Division A Championship, while the Netherlands and China were demoted to Division C. In the Division C competition, Denmark and Japan were promoted, Belgium and Romania, by their own decision due to economic reasons, relegated to Division D. Australia won Division D and was promoted along with South Korea to Division C.
