Because of its decentralized structure, AEGEE carries out a great many cultural and intellectual activities through its different national and local branches. It organizes conferences, seminars and workshops with participants from all the countries of the region. As an interdisciplinary student organization, AEGEE deals with a wide variety of topics and themes: international politics (with special emphasis on the Balkans), the promotion of a European dimension in higher education, human rights, sustainable development and information technologies.
By 2000, AEGEE had already organized 93 summer universities, attended by over 2,000 students, offering courses in languages, international law, international political science, sports, environment and local cultures. Among its ongoing activities, significant regional integration projects have been implemented, a notable example of which is the Socrates project on mobility in Europe, in connection with which three regional seminars have been held on the themes “Learning throughout life”, “Education: building European citizens” and “Towards European higher education”.
