New Caledonia’s independence referendum: Local and regional implications
Fisher, Denise | May 2019
This Analysis explores what is at stake in this final stage of peace agreements, both for New Caledonia and for France. It looks at the historical context of the forthcoming referendums, the first referendum outcome and next steps in New Caledonia’s self-determination process, including the upcoming provincial elections and how they might determine the political balance for negotiating future governance beyond the Noumea Accord. It also identifies the implications of New Caledonia’s independence referendum process for the territory, France, the wider region, and Australia.
