Since Germany became a target of transnational jihadist terrorism in 2016, calls for stronger cooperation in counterterrorism at the European and NATO-level have grown. An analysis of German experiences evidences particularities in terms of political culture, institutional division of labour and legal oversight. So far, Germany has opted to sustain its traditional regulatory approach and abstained from a stronger international or military reaction, unlike other Western countries. The article details the specifics of this approach regarding the contemporary public debate on jihadist terrorism in Germany, the law enforcement framework, the various deradicalization programs as well as the role of foreign and security policy .
