Abstract (EN)The purpose of this paper is to assess the effect on North South trade of the quality of governance in developing countries by applying a gravity trade model. I test the model for a sample of 21 OECD countries and 95 developing countries over the period 1984-1997. A panel data analysis is used to disentangle the time invariant country-specific effects and to capture the relationship between the relevant variables over time. The estimation results show that the better governed a developing country is, the more it imports goods from industrialised ones. Besides, thanks to a non linear approximation, it shows that the two traditional visions of the consequences of corruption on trade coexist.
