Social choice theory is the study of mechanisms for collective
decision making. While originally concerned with modelling and
analysing political decision making in groups of people, its basic
principles, arguably, are equally relevant to modelling and analysing
the kinds of interaction taking place in a multiagent system. In
support of this position, I review examples from three strands of
research in social choice theory: fair division, voting, and judgment
