Fairness in Multiwinner Voting


The aim of this talk is to give a short survey of the field of computational social choice, with a focus on voting-related problems, and, in particular, the concepts of fairness in multiwinner voting. We will discuss the justified representation axiom and its variants, to see how axiomatic and computational issues intertwine. We will also discuss the relationship between multiwinner voting and participatory budgeting.
