When governments ignore public opinion in foreign policy: Poland and the Iraq invasion
Utrikespolitiska institutet.
2013 (engelsk)Inngår i: European Security, ISSN 0966-2839, E-ISSN 1746-1545, Vol. 22, nr 3, s. 413-431Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

This article asks why the Government of Poland participated in the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 when a large majority of the Polish public was opposed to national involvement in Iraq. The aim is to further an understanding of the circumstances under which democratic governments ignore public opinion in their foreign policy decision-making. The article argues that a combination of three circumstances increased the willingness of the government to ignore the public. First, the Iraq issue had relatively low salience among the Polish voters, which decreased the domestic political risks of pursuing the policy. Second, the government's Iraq policy was supported by a considerable consensus among the political elite. Third, the political elites were unified in their perceptions that participating in the invasion would yield essential international gains for Poland.
