Abstract

 Although the importance of understanding the diverse values of participants in global infrastructure projects has been increasingly recognized, research on methods to assess moral values in such contexts is still lacking. This article proposes a method for extracting context-specific moral values in three steps: (1) vignette development, (2) interviews, and (3) data analysis. The article illustrates how the method can be applied to understand the way project members make and rationalize their decisions when faced with moral trade-offs in the management of infrastructure projects.
