Abstract: Corruption and migration influence the country level of development, so they have been debated and studied for a long time. Has been written a lot about the two phenomena and their relations with many social and economic factors, but the two also influence each other. The higher the level of corruption in a country, the more people will be more likely to migrate and vice versa. This study aims to study the link between the two phenomena considering the countries from Europe, over time, for the period 2008-2016, highlighting the implications in the economy. The variables analyzed are the Corruption Perception Index and the number of emigrants. The methods used are panel regression and cluster analysis and the processing and analysis was performed using the statistical software SAS (version 9.2) and SPSS (version 13 and 25). The findings show that there is a link at European level between the two phenomena, corruption and migration have a similar trend over time, and significant differences are registered between countries.
