In June 2018, speaking at the Elysée palace, the French president set out his priorities for French overseas departments and territories, including the ‘Overseas Blue Book’ defining the government’s policy for the following five years. How has this policy been worked out in terms of mobility in these departments and territories? What is the broad direction of EU policy (2021-2027 programmes, European Regional Development Fund, etc.)? All France’s overseas organising authorities are implementing highly ambitious and dynamic mobility policies. How do these policies fit with EU programmes? What are the local expectations? The contributors to this workshop will seek to address these questions and nurture constructive discussion and debate about mobility in French overseas departments and territories.
