Abstract. The objective of this work is to determine the role of the misalignment of the real exchange rate in capital flight for a sample of developing countries over the period 1980-2010. Firstly, we calculated the degrees of misalignment for all countries of our sample, which degrees were introduced as a determinant of capital flight. Then, we examined the effect of the overvaluation and the undervaluation on capital flight. The results show that a strong undervaluation may discourage capital flight, while a strong overvaluation can stimulate it.

Keywords: capital flight, equilibrium real exchange rate, overvaluation, undervaluation, cointegration.
