IFAA has run a number of conferences on pressing socioeconomic and political issues confronting South African society.
In 2017, IFAA hosted a major policy conference “Confronting Inequality.” The conference brought together academics, activists, students, business and members of government to discuss how to resolve the country’s large and widening inequality.
In 2015 IFAA co-hosted a colloqium on China’s relations with Africa with the University of Cape Town.
IFAA has also organised two major conferences on the interface between mining and manufacturing in South Africa in collaboration with the Industrial Development Corporation (IDC) and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA).
