Abstract

The study of preference formation and decision making using formal models is a key element of analytical politics. This panel invites papers that test, extend and/or develop theories of political decision making and preference formation based on advanced formal models. The topics range from experimental studies of political preferences and interest aggregation to the development and test of agent based models and formal models of decision making that show how they can be applied to better understand specific problems of political decision making – or why they fail to do so and should be modified.
