ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on the evidence for other explanatory variables mediating the indirect relationship between public opinion and policymaking which scrutinizes the controversial participation of Bulgaria in the Iraq war. Public opinion polls proved to have played a minor role in Bulgaria's involvement in Iraq due to the government's very limited rational choice alternatives which many believe have been imposed on them by the U.S. dominated international context.
