Two egalitarian consensus rules


  • Erwin Ooghe



We widen both the domain and codomain of Arrovian social choice, towards respectively profiles of extended orderings and quasi-orderings. We propose, discuss, and characterize two egalitarian consensus rules – a unanimity-leximin and a lexi-unanimity-min rule – which combine the corresponding standard rules in different ways.
