Community Networks are large scale, self-organized and decentralized networks, built and operated by citizens for citizens. In this paper, we make a case for research on and with community networks, while explaining the relation to Community-Lab. The latter is an open, distributed infrastructure for researchers to experiment with community networks. The goal of Community-Lab is to advance research and empower society by understanding and removing obstacles for these networks and services.
