Danae Azaria joined the Faculty of Laws as a Lecturer in 2013. Her monograph, Treaties on Transit of Energy via Pipelines and Countermeasures, was published by Oxford University Press in 2015 in the series Oxford Monographs of International Law, for which she has been awarded the prestigious Paul Guggenheim Prize (2016). A panel inspired by her monograph was included in the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) and was moderated by the author. The video of the panel discussion ‘Energy on the Move’ can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIkhhcGdh_E 

From September to December 2016, Danae was a Visiting Fellow at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at the University of Cambridge. She holds a PhD and LLM from UCL, a LLM from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, and completed her undergraduate studies in law at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She has received scholarships from the Hellenic State Scholarship Foundation and the Academy of Athens. Her doctoral thesis was awarded the Tenekides Prize of the Hellenic Society of International Law for the PhD thesis of the year 2013-2014, and is the basis of her OUP monograph, which received in 2016 the Research Project of the Year Award from the London-based think tank Greek Energy Forum. 

Danae was a visiting scholar at the Max Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International Law in Heidelberg on a scholarship from the Max Planck Society (2013), and worked at the UN Office in Geneva (International Law Commission), as legal assistant to the Special Rapporteur Georg Nolte (2013).

Danae is an advocate of the Athens Bar Association. She collaborates as an academic advisor with law firms and industry, as well as numerous governmental departments and international organisations. Indicatively, since 2014, she has been a member of the Legal Advisory Task Force of the Energy Charter Secretariat. Since 2012, she was a UK representative at the Management Committee of the Network of experts on the legal aspects of Maritime Safety and Security (MARSAFNET – COST Action IS1105) funded by the EU, and a member of the Working Group on New Developments in Economic Activities at Sea.
