Abstract: Elements of Contextual Integrity as Guideposts for Privacy Research

According to the theory of contextual integrity, disruptions in the flow of personal information (often stemming from deployment of computational systems and digital media) are experienced as privacy threats not merely when they expose personal information or threaten our control over it but when they result in inappropriate flows. Appropriateness of flow is modeled by the construct of context-specific informational norms, which prescribe informational flows according to the parties involved (subjects, senders, recipients), the types of information, and constraints on flow between parties. Empirical studies promise a more nuanced, less ambiguous account of attitudes and behaviors relevant to privacy when taking account of these additional dimensions of analysis.
