Listing as a Non-Self-Governing Territory
New Caledonia was on the United Nations list of Non-Self-Governing Territories from 1946 to 1947, following the transmission of information on New Caledonia and Dependencies by France under Article 73 e of the Charter of the United Nations. In 1986, the General Assembly re-inscribed New Caledonia, by considering that “New Caledonia is a Non-Self-Governing Territory within the meaning of the Charter”.
