Collective identity functions with status quo

José Alcantud () and Annick Laruelle

Mathematical Social Sciences, 2018, vol. 93, issue C, 159-166

Abstract: In this paper, we define the problem of group identification in an extended environment. We concentrate on the problem where the society is required to self-determine the belongingness of each member to a specific group, characterized by a single attribute. In general terms, this case consists of a collective identity issue that can be regarded as an aggregation problem of individual assessments within a group. Here we introduce the possibility that opinions are incomplete and that a status quo option intervenes in the process.
