  • Juraj Mesík Palacky University in Olomouc

Abstract

Since the first part of this essay was published in the DEF, the mighty, formally educated, yet future-naive Europe has received her wake-up call from the future. By the end of 2015, 800,000 asylum seekers are expected to have arrived in Germany (Guardian 2015 A). This is four times more than one year before. By August 2015, more than 125,000 migrants reached the Greek islands – a 750% increase over the whole of 2014 (Business 2015). Globally in three years, from 2011 to 2014, the number of people displaced by war grew from 42.5 million to 59.5 million (UNHCR 2015).
