In addition to academic conferences, the Arnold Bergstraesser Institute also organises lectures and other events for a broad public. The Institute acts as a platform for a transfer of knowledge and exchange of ideas on international political issues, particularly in Freiburg and Baden-Württemberg. Besides events at the Institute, the ABI holds regular joint sessions with the political science colloquium of the University of Freiburg.

When organising its own events and when staff members participate in external events, the Institute seeks to ensure the diversity of speakers as much as possible, in particular including persons from the regions of the Global South.
