In recent years there has been a growing interest in the development, sustainability and infrastructural potential of grassroots solidarity networks that appeared in Greece since 2011. Our datasets focus on the Solidarity Schools’ Network (SSN) in the school year 2018-2019. They include both quantitative (e.g. population of students, teachers or classrooms) and qualitative (e.g. modes of organizing, type of collaborations) dimensions of their operation. The data have been collected as part of the infra-demos research project and aimed at the development of an interactive platform of the SSN.

Infra-demos studies, among other, the potential for participatory modes of infrastructure incubated by these self-organised solidarity networks and it follows a participatory action research (PAR) methodology. The data have been collected by interviews with solidarity activists of each school and the platform has been co-designed by the infra-demos and the SSN. The platform has been developed partly as a management and self re-presentation tool for the needs of the solidarity schools and thus the datasets (and the platforms) are in two languages Greek and English.

Infra-demos is funded by an NWO Vidi Innovational Research Incentives Scheme (project no 452-17-015) hosted in the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Faculty of Social Sciences and led by Prof. Dimitris Dalakoglou.
