‘Different evocations of “crisis” create distinct categories that in turn evoke certain social reactions’ Anna Carastathis, Aila Spathopoulou and Myrto Tsilimpounidi argue in their article , ‘Crisis, what crisis? In further looking into ‘vocabularies of crisis’ they raise a pertinent question that encompasses a wide range of multiple discourses and practices that revolve around this ambivalent notion:

how we can move from the state of emergency (crisis, precarity, displacement) to a state of transition (critique, resistance, occupation), and then to one of emergence (solidarity networks, different social formations, alternative economies). (33)
