Does any thorough discussion of moral parliaments exist?

It's a concept thrown around a lot in EA circles, but I was surprised that I couldn't find any papers fleshing the idea out. The most cited link is a blog post from 2009: http://www.overcomingbias.com/2009/01/moral-uncertainty-towards-a-solution.html

I also found these two resources:

Is there any better exploration of the concept out there?

Yeah, you're not the only one noticing the gap. Hilary and Owen have a paper under review somewhere formalizing it a bit more (I see you've linked to some slides Hilary put together on it), so keep an eye out for that.
