In the year thirteen hundred and sixty of our Lord, Anno Domini, the newly formed Hanseatic League looms over the politics of the Baltic region. As the premier mercantile and political league in the Holy Roman Empire, the young merchant princes of the Hansa gaze out at a world ripe for financial hegemony. From Canterbury to Cathay, the world will tremble as the merchant princes of the north flex their newfound might to dominate trade for centuries to come.

BACKGROUND GUIDE COMING SOON
NAIMUN strives to provide every delegate with a well-rounded, educational, and enjoyable experience. The learning objectives for the Hanseatic League are as follows. Delegates will gain:
A firsthand look at one of the pivotal periods in Roman history, one that was instrumental in the transition from republic to empire and the life of Julius Caesar
A strong understanding of the complexities of war and diplomacy and the necessity for a nuanced understanding of social, political, cultural, religious, and economic factors of way beyond troop movements and battle plans
A better knowledge of asymmetrical warfare and innovative tactics necessary for a small, unorganized group opposing a larger power that translates well to many of today's conflicts

About the Crisis Manager
John Conner Key is a junior in the School of Foreign Service, studying Global Business. When not making delegates cry or procrastinating on committee work, he can be found fencing, playing basketball or watching low-quality action films on Netflix. Having lived in a German speaking region for much of his life, and with an interest in banking, he is excited to see in which direction delegates take the Hansa.
