“Computing power indices for weighted voting games via dynamic programming” has been co-authored by Staudacher, Stach, et al. and is aimed at providing efficient algorithms for computing various power indices. These algorithms – soon expected also as an R-package – allow one to model weighted voting situations with hundreds of voters.
The paper titled Brexit and Power in the Council of the European Union discusses the impact of Brexit on voting in the Council of the European Union. There is a remarkably sharp relation between population size and the change in power: Brexit increases the largest members’ powers while decreasing the smallest ones’ powers.
