Carnegie Europe Blog Editor to Speak at Conference – Knox County VillageSoup


Judy Dempsey, senior researcher at Carnegie Europe, will join a list of speakers at the 35th annual Camden Conference, Europe: Challenged at Home and Abroad, February 25-27. Some of Europe’s most daunting challenges – the pandemic, the climate crisis, migration and corruption – will be addressed at the conference by leading experts in European politics and strategy.

Writing for the Strategic Europe blog, Dempsey said: “The EU’s geoeconomic and geopolitical agenda is based on tackling climate change, carbon neutrality and accelerating digitalisation. These are ambitious long-term goals. Their implementation and realization runs counter to the governments of several Member States. Whether it’s the automotive industry in Germany, the coal mining sector in Poland or the energy mix in France, policies prioritize short-term gains over long-term benefits. “Lifestyles will have to change if the planet is to recover from current levels of human-made degradation and destruction.”

Dempsey has been the editor of Carnegie Europe’s Strategic Europe blog since 2012. Previously, she was a columnist for the International New York Times and a correspondent for the International Herald Tribune in Germany in Berlin from 2004 to 2011. From 2001 to 2004, Ms. Dempsey was a diplomatic correspondent for the Financial Times in Brussels, covering NATO and European Union enlargements. She has also served as Financial Times Bureau Chief in Jerusalem, Berlin Correspondent and Eastern Europe Correspondent. She has received several journalism awards; the most recent was the 2021 Ernest Udina Prize, awarded by the European Association of Journalists in Catalonia. She is the author of several publications including Das Phänomen Merkel.

Dempsey will join nine other global experts for the Camden 2022 conference with conference moderator David Brancaccio, host of American Public Media’s Marketplace Morning Report. Speakers will participate live wherever they live or work around the world as the conference shifts once again to a virtual livestream format due to the realities of the global COVID pandemic. The livestream format allows for audience interaction (Q&A) with the speakers, in line with the Camden Conference’s mission to foster informed discourse on global issues.
