Abstract—When moving to a Type Theory without proof irrelevance the notion of a setoid has to be generalized to the notion of a weak ω-groupoid. As a first step in this direction we study the formalisation of weak ω-groupoids in Type Theory. This is motivated by Voevodsky’s proposal of univalent type theory which is incompatible with proof-irrelevance and the results by Lumsdaine and Garner/van de Berg showing that the standard eliminator for equality gives rise to a weak ω-groupoid.
