This chapter reveals how civil society advocates in Japan have pursued national policy advocacy while drawing on street-level experience and contributing to governance on the ground. It focuses on the Solidarity Network with Migrants Japan's efforts (Ijū rōdōsha to rentai suru zenkoku nettowāku; hereafter, Ijūren) as well as its affiliates. This network form of organization and range of members had established its credentials with central elites and governments as a force to be acknowledged. It maintained autonomous voice over national policy issues, while providing services that at times intersect and cooperate with, conflict with, or remain separate from local governments' goals and measures.

Keywords:   civil society advocates, national policy advocacy, Solidarity Network, Ijūren, Japan
