Special Zones and New Jurisdictions
One of our partners/clients is the Startup Societies Foundation with its Institute for Competitive Governance. Seaphia leads the publication of the Startup Society's Journal of Special Jurisdictions. This is the only active academic journal focused on special jurisdictions.
Every issue of the journal focuses on innovative jurisdictions from across the world.
By participating in the Journal of Special Jurisdictions, Seaphia pushes the boundaries of knowledge in the governance and decentralized governance space.
