AISA organises many activities annually: seminars, colloquia, workshops, symposia and conferences. The activities take place in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda. There are plans to expand these activities to include other countries in Africa. These activities promote mentoring of junior scholars. AISA encourages partnerships and co-authoring of papers between junior and senior scholars. AISA understands that it is only through such partnerships that grounded academic initiatives can be created and developed. The climax of AISA activities is the annual international interdisciplinary conference held in the month of June and which brings together about 1000 participants. The call for papers usually goes out around June for a conference taking place the following year.
