In this chapter, we analyze a contemporary Danish civil society organization (CSO) using the Alan Sears concept infrastructures of dissent. We analyze the Danish CSO Venligboerne, which has gained widespread recognition for its activities and initiatives. The CSO has created a space for itself in the contemporary social landscape as an interlocutor amidst the broad spectrum of organizations that constitute the refugee solidarity movements (Toubøl, Differential recruitment to and outcomes of solidarity activism: ethics, values and group style in the Danish refugee solidarity movement. PhD thesis University of Copenhagen, 2017). We investigate how collective learning, capacities for solidarity, alliance-building and an everyday politics of hope have emerged in the Danish refugee solidarity movement.
