The Seasteading Institute is excited to welcome Dario Mutabdzija as our new Director of Legal Strategy! Dario will lead our efforts to navigate the highly unique and challenging legal issues pertaining to seasteading, including maritime law, legal restrictions on seastead citizens, long-term sovereignty issues, and more. Expect to see a seasteading legal overview whitepaper from Dario in early 2011, similar to our 2010 engineering overview.
Dario Mutabdzija was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and due to the wars connected with dissolution of Yugoslavia he had to immigrate with his family to the United States. Dario lived, studied and/or worked in Hawaii, China, CA, Austria and Sarajevo again. Dario received Master of Laws (LL.M) in Transnational Business Practice from University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law and University of Salzburg, J.D. from McGeorge School of Law and BA in Communications from University of Hawaii at Hilo.
With Dario on board, The Seasteading Institute now has a complete leadership team in place for all of our core research areas: legal, engineering (George Petrie), and business (Max Marty). Expect strong progress in all of these areas in the coming months.
