This contribution gives an overview of experiences with terrorism and the development of counterterrorism strategies in Germany. The formal definition of "terrorist offences" is found in §§ 129a, b Criminal Code. With that, the Federal Republic of Germany has implemented the EU framework decision on terrorism. § 129a encloses a wide approach to terrorist offences and covers recruitment, training, preparatory acts, financing etc. Special arrangements for preventive detention without charge in terror cases do not exist; however, § 129a may serve as a ground to impose pre-trial detention without resorting to conventional grounds such as risk of absconding or obstruction of justice.
