In a recent working paper, Jonathan Newton gives a fixed point solution concept that incorporates http://paperbookintensive.org/ba-dc1/ collective agency under go here incomplete information.

In keeping with the ethos of the SI project, http://paterson-associates.co.uk/property/suite-c-2-water-lane/ agency may be exercised by different entities (e.g. individuals, firms, households). A given individual can form part of multiple agents (e.g. he may belong to a firm and a household).

The paper models such considerations, inspired by the classic model of incomplete information over preferences of Harsanyi.
