She is Secretary of the Greek Association of Tax Law and Fiscal Studies, in which capacity she has organized and participated in numerous seminars, lectures, conferences and working groups on the interpretation of tax legislation in Greece and abroad. Aspasia has taught courses on tax law at ALBA Graduate Business School and seminars at the Athens Law Society and the Ministry of Finance on developments in the tax code. She has been widely published in newspapers and periodicals and conducts research for tax law publications. Since 2011, Aspasia has acted as editor of the Tax Law Bulletin, a leading Greek publication she has contributed to as a director for the last twenty five years.
“The practice of taxation law has always attracted me. In a democracy, taxation does not only impose obligations: to the contrary, it suggests the point at which each centrally governed society understands and realizes freedom of the individual and the welfare state.”
