aporia is an educational organization founded on the Socratic suspicion that political life calls for philosophical examination. We seek to promote thoughtful civic engagement through programming that cultivates an understanding of the philosophical foundations of political life and skills for political discussion, analysis, and critique.
aporia began in 2015 as the Justice Project, a human rights initiative for protecting and promoting the rights of those living on the margins in Cyprus. Our initial programming centered on campaigns and events advocating for social change. In that capacity, we formed partnerships with various local organizations, such as the Office of the UNHCR and the University of Cyprus. Over the years, we’ve transformed ourselves into an educational organization, with a focus on public seminars and events.
