FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “New Caledonia torn over issue of independence from France • FRANCE 24 English” – below is their description.
In this edition, we take you to the South Pacific and the French territory of New Caledonia, which is gearing up for a high-stakes vote on independence on December 12. While other overseas territories are fully integrated into France, New Caledonia stands apart because it is still considered a colony. The reasons for that are rooted in its history – we take a closer look. To fully understand what’s at stake, we speak to anthropologist and historian Benoît Trépied.
