Democracy & Social Choice Group

Democracy and Social Choice is a faculty-student research group that studies issues at the intersection of social choice theory and democratic practice. The focus of the group is the way in which democratic processes aggregate citizen preferences to reach decisions in elections and referendum.

The group reads fundamental research on social choice and democratic theory, it studies actual cases and systems of democratic decision-making, and it explores alternative social choice mechanisms by developing and implementing different preference solicitation and aggregation approaches.
