A paper co-authored by Vikram Bhargava, GW Business assistant professor of strategic management and public policy, titled “Autonomous Vehicles and the Ethics of Driving,” was accepted for publication by “Social Theory and Practice” journal.

The paper, according to the abstract, “argues that if a set of plausible conditions obtain, then driving a standard vehicle rather than riding in an autonomous vehicle will become analogous to driving drunk rather than driving sober, and therefore impermissible.”
