[en] We examine two impacts of international emigration on the evolution of the
institutions in the origin countries. The first impact concerns the influence of
emigration per se (i.e. people who left the country can voice more or less from abroad).
The second impact relates to the transfer of the norms of the host country to the
home country. The existence of both impacts is confirmed using different indicators of
institutional quality. The effects appear stronger when skilled emigration is considered.
The main conclusions are robust to alternative econometric methods and to the use of
subsamples involving developing countries only.
