Brad Ruting, The University of Sydney

THESIS DOWNLOAD: The final version of the thesis is now available for download. It can be downloaded in PDF format (1.52MB) by clicking this link.



UPDATE: I have compiled 2006 census data on Estonians in Australia, which can be downloaded here

UPDATE: I have also recently presented a paper containing some of my preliminary findings to the Association for the Advancement of Baltic Studies conference in Melbourne in early September. A copy of my paper can be downloaded here.

I am a geography student at the University of Sydney. I am studying Estonian migration and tourism, looking at how travel behaviour is influenced by recent and past migrations. (And if you're wondering why I've picked Estonians, because it's a very interesting group with an interesting history, and because of my own Estonian heritage.)
