Formation of Committees Through Random Voting Rules
We characterize unanimous and strategy-proof random social choice functions in the classical committee formation model in terms of the properties of marginal decomposability and monotonicity. We show that if committees of a fixed size have to be selected, then an onto and strategy-proof random social choice function must be an appropriately defined random dictatorship.
