     Clipperton Island
Clipperton Island is a nine-square-kilometre (approx. 3.5 square mile) coral atoll in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, southwest of Mexico and west of Central America, at 10°18′N 109°13′W (Clipperton Island coordinates). It has no permanent inhabitants, but has some mineral and strategic  value, which explains its long history of disputed ownership, primarliy between Mexico and France.  Clipperton Island was administered from French Polynesia until 2007. Its status is sui generis as an overseas possession of France under the direct authority of the French government, administered by the Minister of Overseas France.   Considered to be a part of Metropolitan France, French law applies directly in these territories and collectivities, augmented slightly by enabling and other specific laws and regulations. You may consult the bookstore (boutique) of LexisNexis France for the best and most comprehensive sources on French law as it may be applied on or with regard to Clipperton Island.

   Wallis & Futuna Islands
Wallis and Futuna, officially the Territory of Wallis and Futuna Islands (French: Wallis et Futuna or Territoire des îles Wallis et Futuna, Fakauvea and Fakafutuna: Uvea mo Futuna), is a Polynesian French island territory (but not part of, or even contiguous with, French Polynesia) in the South Pacific between Fiji and Samoa. It is made up of three main volcanic tropical islands and a number of tiny islets.  From 1961 to 2003, it had the status of a French overseas territory (territoire d'outre-mer, or TOM). In 2003 Wallis and Futuna was made a French overseas collectivity (collectivité d'outre-mer, or COM).  Considered to be a part of Metropolitan France, French law applies directly in these territories and collectivities, augmented slightly by enabling and other specific laws and regulations. You may consult the bookstore (boutique) of LexisNexis France for the best and most comprehensive sources on French law as it may be applied on Wallis and Futuna.
