Understanding what drives individual preferences towards immigration is an important research question, both for the purpose of carrying out descriptive political economy analysis, as well as to design actual policies in a democratic society. There is much debate in the existing literature on the role played by both economic and non-economic determinants of individual attitudes. In this paper, we review the main contributions to this discourse, pointing out how the two sets of channels play a complementary role. Furthermore, we highlight some of the important shortcomings of the existing studies, and identify avenues for further research.
