Compact Course: Judgment Aggregation: An Introductory Afternoon (29 May 2017)
by Christian List (LSE)
Idea & Motivation
The aim of this compact course is to introduce the theory of judgment aggregation. Judgment-aggregation theory addresses the question of how the judgments of several individuals (experts, committee members, voters, but also theories or criteria) can be aggregated into overall collective judgments. The interest in this question was originally prompted by the observation that majority voting does not always secure consistent collective judgments, which raises the question of whether other aggregation rules perform better.
