Voting Power and Procedures
This collection of essays honouring Dan Felsenthal and Moshé Machover, edited by the Centre's VPP Project Leader Rudolf Fara (LSE) and Research Associates Dennis Leech (U of Warwick) and Maurice Salles (U of Caen), reconsiders foundational aspects of the measurement of voting power. The specific case of voting power in two-tier systems - for instance the US system and the EU system - is analysed. Furthermore major power indices - Penrose, Banzhaf, Shapley-Shubik and others - are revisited. The book proposes new voting procedures and studies well-known procedures and/or apportionment methods either from a technical or historical point of view.
