The introduction into the problems raised by the present paper is done by sizing the framework in which the corruption phenomenon makes its presence, in the state's public sector of the emerging economies. Related to the definition of the phenomenon itself, that is connected to the abuse of public power and its causes and effects are as numerous, as difficult to quantify. Therefore, we propose in this paper an analysis of some of the effects of corruption through the conduct of public officials (with focus on their granting of favors for different groups and interests), the diversion of public funds to companies or individuals and, not least, the revealing of the confidence manifested by public opinion looking the government efficiency in fighting corruption. The area of study was the European Union area with systematization in emerging and, respectively, developed economies.
