Da-Chi Liao - The Decision-Making Process of Removing the Chiang Kai-Shek Statue in the National Sun Yat-Sen University: An Application of the Garbage Can Theory

Date:        Thursday 4th April, 2019

Time:        17:00 - 18:30

Location:   SIN1, entrance 2.3, Altes AKH, Campus, Spitalgasse 2



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.
