[en] The author analyses and comments the evolutions of statements and decisions of French authorities, of legal decisions, and actions of the Committee for compensation of victims of nuclear tests (CIVEN). While indicating the number of victims and the number of applications (with a very small proportion of compensation propositions), the author outlines the very slow and small evolution of legal texts, evokes the content of some amendments which were supposed to take statements made by the French President in 2016 into account, outlines that the debate on the issue has not been sufficient. He more particularly evokes the issue of a so-called 'negligible risk', comments the content of a law. He notably comments the origins of compensation applications (military personnel, civilian personnel, civilian workers, inhabitants of Algeria and of French Polynesia), the number of justice decisions, and strangely low number of people actually acknowledged as victims. He regrets that the Committee has the possibility to re-examine cases but is not obliged to it.
