    • News

In this episode of FO° Podcasts, host Atul welcomes back Flavius Mihaies to discuss the recent political unrest in the French overseas territory. Flavius explains that the crisis stems from the indigenous Kanak population's demands for greater autonomy and potential independence. The Kanaks, comprising 41% of the population, are concerned about proposed changes in voting laws by the French government, which they see as undermining their political power. The episode delves into New Caledonia's colonial history, its strategic importance, and the economic and healthcare benefits provided by France. Efforts at resolution and the island's divided stance on independence are also explored.
