The chapter shows what the effects of those constellations are CAA critical analysis of technology emerges through the diagnosis of effects, particularly as socio-technical assemblages, and unpacking the specific relations through which agency emerges. It is interesting to engage with laboratories and the production of technology and to revisit what counts as a laboratory. It is important to do transversal analyses, to move outside of the laboratory. An ethics which inscribes particular universal rights in the technology design does not only decontextualize the subjects of technologies, but it imagines a universal and non-situated subject of technology. The chapter develops in Science and Technology Studies (STS) and New Materialism and the turn towards these literatures in International Relations (IR), and to study the question of agency more specifically with regard to IR and technology.
