From Colonial France to the French Overseas Territories

In this article we analyze the 1946 Constitutional debates concerning
the French Union (an entity bringing together the home country and
the overseas territories) and the transformation into departments of the
oldest French colonies, which have since become the overseas departments.
We illustrate how these debates opposed two conceptions of the
Empire, and through them two conceptions of the nation and of the
Republic. The first one, embodied in the concept of one Republic, indivisible,
was assimilationist and centralizing whereast the second one
was more respectful of local cultures and political autonomy.
