Helen Nissenbaum’s theory of contextual integrity is arguably the most influential theory of privacy of the last decade. Its account of privacy describes its nature; it also offers normative foundations for its value to individuals and societies. Nissenbaum’s theory of contextual integrity seeks a theoretical understanding of privacy not only for the sake of theory, but also to address real world threats posed by deployments of digital technologies. As a result, privacy as contextual integrity is highly relevant to a range of disciplines working on questions of privacy, including law and policy, social sciences, and technology design. In this masterclass we will, together with Professor Nissenbaum, explore the framework of contextual integrity and its application to real life cases.
