Principled Electronic Consent Management

A Preliminary Research Framework
Christian J Bonnici, Lizzie Coles Kemp

Consent is a multifaceted concept that has not recieved much attention in informations systems literature. In this paper we categorise current electronic consent decision making systems into first generation, ex-post and principled Electronic Consent Management. We argue for the adaption of principled ECM as a way forward to consent management in information systems, and outlineĀ  a research framework for ECM, proposing three key components: consent theory, ECM norms and ECM norms’ manifestation. A real world context is them selected to illustrate the framework’s intention.
