Agenda-Manipulation in Ranking


 A committee ranks a set of alternatives by sequentially voting on pairs. The chair of the committee chooses the order of pairwise votes. Although the chair has no knowledge of voters’ behaviour or preferences, we show that she can do as well as if she had full information. We characterise strategies with this ‘robust unimprovability’ property as precisely those that avoid three intuitive types of error. We show that insertion sort, a sorting algorithm from the computer science literature, is extremal among the robustly unimprovable strategies, and characterise the class of extremal strategies.
