Anti-immigrant sentiment is frequently motivated by the idea that migrants are a threat to the host countryâ€™s culture (Rapoport et al., 2020). We contribute to the discussion by investigating whether migrants adapt their social preferences (SPs) to those prevalent in their host country. For this, we rely on a global and experimentally validated survey to show that migrantsâ€™ preferences strongly correlate with their host populationâ€™s SPs and provide some evidence of a causal relationship.
