La transizione costituzionale della Nuova Caledonia tra autonomia, multiculturalismo e tutela delle identità

The constitutional transition of New Caledonia between autonomy, multiculturalism and identity protection

  • Vincenzo Pepe

Abstract

The experience of New Caledonia represents an emblematic case of a multicultural society influenced by globalization, the crisis of sovereignty of the French national state, but above all by the claim of the diversity and cultural identities of the Kanak. The victory of the "No" in the referendum of 2018 in New Caledonia represented the contrast between the identity instances of native peoples and the assimilationist policies typical of French nationalism. The future of New Caledonia must be sought in a balance between the protection of Kanak's identities and the indivisibility and unity of the French model


Keywords: Referendum of 2018 in New Caledonia; Assimilationist policies; Bipolarisation of political and social life; Multicultural society; Equality and fraternity.
