Some South Pacific territories are registered on the list of the UN 4th Committee on Decolonisation while some other territories, from the same region, and that would deserve to be on that list, are not. After discussing the criteria applied by the UN Committee to define self-determination, we consider whether the principle of decolonisation, and self-determination, in the main perspective of independence, is still a valid option today.
