S'installer et vivre en Polynésie Française : Mobilités et recompositions territoriales : L'exemple de Ra'iatea (Iles-Sous-Le-Vent) et Rurutu (Australes)

Abstract : French Polynesia has always been a space of mobility. Circulation is even consubstantial with the Polynesian identity based on a reticular territoriality. For several decades, French Polynesia as a whole has experienced a positive migratory balance, but it is mainly the island of Tahiti that has absorbed most of this immigration linked to the arrival of Polynesians from the other archipelagos and French and foreign people. The results of the 2012 and 2017 population censuses seem to reveal a change in the dynamics of mobility in the Territory: Tahiti is now recording more departures than arrivals, unlike some of the other archipelagos which have slightly positive net migratory rates. Could this be an illustration of a renaissance of the margins and the emergence of a new mobility model as observed in some Western territories, or should this evolution be understood in the light of different Oceanian references? Based on qualitative interviews and observations carried out on two islands, Ra'iatea and Rurutu, this thesis examines the nature of contemporary mobility in French Polynesia, questions the existence of a new model of mobility, and analyzes island living patterns today.
