THE EFFECT OF IMMIGRATION ON DESTINATION-COUNTRY CORRUPTION Among the countries with the highest level of corruption (according to the International Country Risk Guide), several countries exhibit substantial numbers of emigrants. One may speculate that persistent corruption in a country normalises corrupt behaviour among citizens and that emigrants from a corruption-ridden country may carry some of this attitude into their destination. Hence, one may ask whether we will – sooner or later – see increasing levels of corruption in the (less corrupt) destinations of immigrants from more corrupt countries. Arguably, however, we could also imagine the opposite: if it is mostly honest citizens fleeing their corrupt home countries, the effect on the destination country might be beneficial with no change or even a decrease in the general level of corruption.
