The language policy of New Caledonia is a crucial issue, as it is both the heir of a colonial heritage and part of the future of the country. The Noum�a Agreement (Accord de Noum�a) is a landmark in the post-colonial history of New Caledonia. Passed in 1998, it establishes, among other things, a new rapport between languages: from then on, the Kanak languages have become, along with French, � languages of instruction and culture �. The notion of language policy cannot be dissociated from that of educational policy and of the political project called the �common destiny� in the agreement.
