Designing programmable privacy logic frameworks that correspond to social, ethical, and legal norms has been a fundamentally hard problem. The theory of Contextual integrity (CI) (Nissenbaum 2010) offers a model for conceptualizing privacy that is able to bridge technical design with ethical, legal, and policy approaches. While CI is capable of capturing the various components of contextual privacy in theory, it is challenging to discover and formally express these norms in operational terms. This talk will discuss our work in designing a framework for crowdsourcing privacy norms based on the theory of contextual integrity.
