The talk on “Decision Making Processes of Removing Chiang Kai-shek Statue in NSYSU” adopts a “garbage can” model to explicate how the statue removal issue was generated, processed and decided. The garbage can model portrays a decision that can be made often involving three independently flowing streams: problems (issues), solutions, and participants. A certain solution may look for a problem to link up with, whenever a proper decision-making occasion is opening and certain participants who pet the solution are also attending. The talk will utilize these elements, 3 streams and decision occasions, to narrate the story of Chiang Kai-shek Statue’s removal in NSYSU.
