Would seastead city-states eventually seek international recognition?
In short, yes. However, we do not expect this to happen for several decades. In the interim, seasteads will first operate using so-called “flags of convenience” from countries with open flag registries. Eventually seasteads will create alliances and negotiate treaties with other nations. When there are enough seasteaders—as well as mutual respect among the various seasteads and major world powers—seasteads are likely to seek recognition from the United Nations, and ultimately recognized sovereignty.
