Equality-by-lot is the blog of the Kleroterians. The Kleroterians are an informal group interested in the deliberate use of randomness (lottery) in human affairs. There are two main areas of interest: Its use in Governance (sortition) and Distribution. The aim of this blog is to provide a discussion and information forum for ourselves, but also a ‘shop-window’ for our ideas.
Membership as a Contributor is open to all ‘Kleroterians’ plus others we might agree to. A Contributor is someone who can post an article onto the blog. To become a contributor, please email Conall Boyle or Yoram Gat. You will need a wordpress account. Setting up a wordpress account is free and simple – go to wordpress.com.
Contributions can be anything that may be of interest to the group. This could include:
- Academic papers, especially in draft, pre-published form for discussion.
- ‘Think-pieces’ by group members, preferably which have been published elsewhere.
- News items about the use of randomness (lottery) in both governance and distribution
Remember though, that this is a forum open to the public. Nothing naughty please!
Potential contributors need not be deterred by technical hurdles. Yoram Gat will serve as technical support for contributors.
