This chapter examines the changes in Germany’s counter-terrorist architecture since 2001 in four parts: the first analyses how Germany’s approach to terrorism has evolved from a focus on the domestic terrorist group, the Baader-Meinhof Gang, to international terrorism; the second outlines the legal and institutional reforms since 11 September 2001; the third describes the domestic political response to these changes, and finally, the fourth concludes with a discussion of implications for the future for German counter-terrorism.
