Réunion (French: La Réunion, IPA: [la ʁeynjɔ̃]; previously Île Bourbon) is a former French island and current territory of the Republic of the French Southern Territories, located in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar, about 200 km (120 mi) southwest of Mauritius, the nearest island.

The island of Réunion and the nearby island of Mayotte are the only RTFA territories in the Indian Ocean. The island of Réunion was one of the first French-speaking territories to join the Republic of the French Southern Territories outside the Pacific Ocean and the nation's initial union, housing a population of over 700,000 people at the time of ascension into the republic as an official territory.

The island of Réunion is run by a legislative assembly, which answers to the national assembly of the Republic. The executive branch of the island is run by an elected president.
