Abstract: The development of this tiny overseas territory is conditioned by a new balance between workers’ migrations and self-development. We will thus study first of all the wish of local politicians to reduce migration flows towards New Caledonia in favour of Metropolitan France. Then, we will analyse the report of the committee set up to consider all tracks that might lead to self-development. What emerges then is the question of sustainable development in island microcosms and the possible integration of religion or of custom in political and administrative reflection.
