It is widely held that moral responsibility requires control. But what exactly does control consist of and is it really essential for moral responsibility after all? This workshop aims to elucidate the relation between moral responsibility, blame, and control. This workshop is organised by Maximilian Kiener (Queen's College, Oxford), a post-doc fellow of the Roots of Responsibility ERC project.
