Deriving individual obligations from collective obligations

pdf-format:


Abstract

A collective obligation is an obligation directed to a group of
agents so that the group, as a whole, is obliged to achieve a given
task.

The problem investigated here is the impact of collective
obligations to individual obligations, i.e. obligations directed to
single agents of the group. The groups we consider do not have any
particular hierarchical structure nor have an institutionalized
representative agent. In this case, we claim that the derivation of
individual obligations from collective obligations depends on
several parameters among which the ability of the agents (i.e. what
they can do) and their own personal commitments (i.e. what they are
determined to do). As for checking if these obligations are
fulfilled or not, we need to know what are the actual actions
performed by the agents.

This present paper addresses these questions in the rather general
case when the collective obligations are conditional ones.
