- Issue Date:
This chapter explores a range of different approaches to ethics and their relevance to Participatory Design as background to the ethical issues of designing with users. The discussion highlights the strong connections between ethical practices in design, the inclusiveness of the design processes, the choice of design methods and the responsibilities and accountabilities of those participating. The chapter calls for increased attention to the ways that design is completed in use and for new and extended Participatory Design methods and tools to better forsee and imagine ethical issues that might arise in the use of future technologies.
