Abstract

In this article, we propose to evaluate the robustness of the main indicators of international financial integration by indicating their principal results as well as their limits. Empirical studies, whatever the indicator of integration which is chosen, conclude that the recent period is characterized by a very deep integration of capital markets, without any historical equivalence.
