Abstract: Drawing from the literature on the determinants of corruption, this article examines the relationship between corruption and the nature of state of fragility. Robust empirical evidence shows a correlation between the level of corruption and state fragility. In a further assessment with the econometrics of instrumental variables we find evidence of causality neither flowing from state fragility to classical corruption nor to extreme corruption. S’enregistrant dans la littérature sur les déterminants de la corruption, cet article a pour objectif d’étudier la relation entre la corruption et la nature de l’Etat, à savoir ici : sa fragilité. De manière empirique et robuste, nous trouvons une corrélation entre le niveau de la corruption et la fragilité de l’Etat. Qui plus est, nos résultats suggèrent, après manipulation de l’économétrie des variables instrumentales, aucune causalité allant de la fragilité étatique au niveau de la corruption « classique » d’une part et une causalité allant de la fragilité étatique à l’extrême corruption d’autre part.
