Louis-Philippe Campeau

Louis-Philippe holds a BA in History from the University of Ottawa, where he focused on Russian history and the impact of ideologies. He also spent a year working for the Canadian military archives in Ottawa.

Taking a career brake, he spent the next two years travelling through the ex-USSR by bicycle in order to better understand its people and cultures. This journey brought him to Tbilisi, where he is now doing independent research on the impact that alternative ideologies (neither Bolshevik nor Menshevik) had on the events leading to the 1918-1921 period of independence.

He speaks French, English and Russian and is studying Georgian.
