Dimitrios Kyriazis is a Stipendiary Lecturer in European and Constitutional Law at Mansfield College. His research focuses on the interaction between EU state aid rules and national tax measures, exploring, in particular, the extent to which EU state aid policy can serve as a tool against harmful tax competition between Member States. In this context, emphasis is placed on the recent Commission investigations into multinationals' tax arrangements. His research has been supported by, inter alia, the Clarendon and Onassis scholarships.
Dimitrios obtained his LL.B. (Distinction) at the University of Athens, graduating top of the class. He also holds an MJur (Distinction) from the University of Oxford, graduating top of the class (Clifford Chance Prize), with the support of an Onassis Foundation scholarship. He completed the MPhil in Law (Distinction) as a Light Senior Scholar at St Catherine's College (University of Oxford). He has previously served as Teaching Fellow in Law at UCL, has delivered numerous guest lectures at Leiden University and Queen Mary University of London, and has previously practiced law in Brussels, primarily working on State aid, M&A and Competition law.
