Value Sensitive Design is a theoretically grounded approach to the design of technology that accounts for human values in a principled and comprehensive manner throughout the design process. It employs an integrative and iterative tripartite methodology, consisting of conceptual, empirical, and technical investigations. We explicate Value Sensitive Design by drawing on three case studies. The first study concerns information and control of web browser cookies, implicating the value of informed…

The role of design values in information system development for human benefit
TLDR
The VSD framework is used to study information system design in a human development context with novel implications for both research and practice and provides valuable lessons on how to approach design of systems that can benefit humans.
A Survey of Value Sensitive Design Methods
TLDR
A survey of 14 value sensitive design methods, serving such purposes as stakeholder identification and legitimation, value representation andelicitation, and values analysis, and concludes with reflections on core characteristics of valuesensitive design methodology, and heuristics for innovation.
Conceptualizing Policy in Value Sensitive Design
TLDR
The value sensitive design approach to designing emerging technologies for human values is taken as the object of study and it is shown that the interactional nature of VSD permits and encourages existing policies to be integrated early on and throughout the design process.
A Value Sensitive Design Case Study: Why Values Do (not) Design
The need for engaging with values in the processes of design has gained increasing attention in the last decades of HumanComputer Interaction research. However, literature that critically outlines
Bringing Discourse Ethics to Value Sensitive Design: Pathways toward a Deliberative Future
Value Sensitive Design (VSD) is a comprehensive framework for advancing a value-centered research and design agenda. It provides methods for producing and evaluating a design outcome by taking human
Charting the Next Decade for Value Sensitive Design
In the 2010’s it is widely recognized by computer and information scientists, social scientists, designers, and philosophers of technology that the design of information systems is not value neutral
Imaginative Value Sensitive Design: Using Moral Imagination Theory to Inform Responsible Technology Design
TLDR
The VSD methodology, particularly applied to nano-bio-info-cogno technologies, has an insufficient grounding for the determination of moral values, and an exploration of the value-investigations of VSD are deconstructed to illustrate both its strengths and weaknesses.
Implicating Human Values for designing a Digital Government Collaborative Platform for Environmental Issues: A Value Sensitive Design Approach
Digital technology is instrumental in designing e-government services to achieve environmental sustainability. This study aims to implicate essential human values for designing a Digital Government
Eliciting Values Reflections by Engaging Privacy Futures Using Design Workbooks
TLDR
A case study using a design workbook of speculative design fictions as a values elicitation tool in interviews with graduate students training as future technology professionals and discusses how these design artifacts surface contextual, socially-oriented understandings of privacy and their potential utility in relationship to other values levers.
Next steps for value sensitive design
TLDR
This essay addresses issues of theory, voice, and reportage in Value Sensitive Design by suggesting four topics for next steps in the evolution of VSD, and proposes new or altered approaches for VSD that address these issues.

Values as lived experience: evolving value sensitive design in support of value discovery
TLDR
Three empirical case studies are presented that illustrate a family of methods to effectively engage local expressions of values in Value Sensitive Design and provide evidence of how the VSD methodology can be matured to mitigate the pitfalls of classification and engender a commitment to reflect on and respond to local contexts of design.
Next steps for value sensitive design
TLDR
This essay addresses issues of theory, voice, and reportage in Value Sensitive Design by suggesting four topics for next steps in the evolution of VSD, and proposes new or altered approaches for VSD that address these issues.
Values and pragmatic action: The challenges of introducing ethical intelligence in technical design communities
Various Value-Conscious Design frameworks have recently emerged to introduce moral and ethical intelligence into business and technical design contexts, with the goal of proactively influencing the
Informing Public Deliberation: Value Sensitive Design of Indicators for a Large-scale Urban Simulation
TLDR
The design addresses a number of challenges, including responding to the values and interests of diverse stakeholders, making documentation ready-to-hand, and balancing the value of fairness with presenting a diverse set of advocacy positions.
Participatory Design: Principles and Practices
The voices in this collection are primarily those of researchers and developers concerned with bringing knowledge of technological possibilities to bear on informed and effective system design. Their
Human values and the design of computer technology
TLDR
This chapter discusses human agency and responsible computing, which has implications for computer system design in the United States and discusses value-Sensitive design.
Value sensitive design of interactions with urbansim indicators
Around the United States and around the world, people grapple with issues such as traffic jams, affordable housing, and urban sprawl. Decisions such as whether to build a new freeway, expand transit
Unpacking "privacy" for a networked world
TLDR
A model of privacy as a dynamic, dialectic process is outlined, and three tensions that govern interpersonal privacy management in everyday life are discussed, and these are used to explore select technology case studies drawn from the research literature.
Informed consent in the Mozilla browser: implementing value-sensitive design
TLDR
This work describes the VSD methodology, explicate criteria for informed consent in online interactions and summarize how current browsers fall short with respect to those criteria.
Research Commentary: Desperately Seeking the "IT" in IT Research - A Call to Theorizing the IT Artifact
TLDR
It is proposed that IS researchers begin to theorize specifically about IT artifacts, and then incorporate these theories explicitly into their studies, and believe that such a research direction is critical if IS research is to make a significant contribution to the understanding of a world increasingly suffused with ubiquitous, interdependent, and emergent information technologies.
