Welcome to the Chair of Economic Theory!

We – Prof. Clemens Puppe and his team – investigate collective decision mechanisms in terms of their properties for aggregating preferences (Social Choice Theory) and judgments or opinions (Judgment Aggregation). These include procedures to elect and rank/prioritize candidates, initiatives, projects etc. A further focus is on game and decision theory, not least taking into account insights from behavioral economics.



We are happy to have hosted the Conference on Voting Theory and Preference Aggregation in honor of Klaus Nehring's 65th birthday from 9th to 11th of October at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. We are pleased to share further information on the program and photos of the event.
