Sarah Logan, ‘ “New Technologies”: Questions of Agency, Responsibility and Luck: Sarah Logan in Conversation with Toni Erskine’, in Caroline Kaltofen, Madeline Carr, and Michele Acuto, eds, Technologies of International Relations: Continuity and Change, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, pp. 123-36.

In this wide-ranging conversation Professor Erskine details the emergence of her interest in new technologies and their impact on international ethics and politics. She explains how a research interest in the early stages of her career in the ethics and norms of war led via work on institutional moral agency to her current research on artificial intelligence. She outlines the key questions animating her work in the context of AI, robots and moral agency and moral standing. She goes on to explain how technology has become increasingly foregrounded in her work and discusses the impact of technology on International Relations.
