It does seem difficult to conduct empirical investigations without a reason to engage particular people or to conduct technical investigations with no notion of the user or others who might be affected. Indeed, all three of the case studies discussed above begin their application of VSD with a stakeholder analysis. While Le Dantec et al. (2009) claim that their work begins with empirical investigation, Borning and Muller (2012) point out that the project truly begins with a conceptual move, the identification of homeless people as a stakeholder group worthy of interest.

In extending VSD to “value conscious design,” Manders-Huits (2011) recommends that designers clarify their ethical goals and explicate their chosen ethical theory. Several VSD projects have adopted ethical theories found suitable to the project domain. For example, Borning et al. (2005) draw upon discourse ethics to support the legitimation of an urban simulation, while Chatterjee et al. (2009) explicitly adopt deontological ethics in the context of developing collaboration systems. Writing about the design of a hypothetical weapons command and control system, Cummings (2006) draws on the theory of just war and the principles of proportionality and discrimination.
