Konstantinos (Kostas) Zouraris (Greek: Κωνσταντίνος (Κώστας) Ζουράρις; born 1940 in Thessaloniki) is a Greek, from Greece's Macedonia region, political scientist and writer.[1] Since January 2015 he has been a member of the Hellenic Parliament for the Thessaloniki A constituency.

He studied law in Thessaloniki and political science in Paris, where he was involved in the May 1968 movement [1]. He has taught political science at Vincennes-Paris university since 1969. He is also a politician, erstwhile member of the pro-Soviet Greek communist party and of the euro-Communist party (KKE Interior), and the former editor of newspaper Makedonia.

Kostas Zouraris is a prominent speaker of the Greek position in the Macedonia naming dispute, frequently speaking on behalf of those opposing any compromise solution for the name of the neighbouring Republic of Macedonia, that would include the word "Macedonia" or its derivatives. In May 2009 together with Stelios Papathemelis he founded the Panhellenic Macedonian Front coalition to run in the European Parliamentary elections. The party included Greek Macedonian diaspora organisations in its structure. [2]

He was a candidate for the European Parliament with ANEL, in the elections of 25 May 2014. He was elected as a Member of Parliament with ANEL in the legislative elections of January 2015 and again in the legislative elections of September 2015.
