The Annual Report on the Protection of the Constitution (Verfassungsschutzbericht) is published by the German Federal Ministry of the Interior since 1968. In the Annual Report details of the activities of far right, far left, Islamic extremists foreign and domestic, in Germany, as well as espionage, are given. The Bundesverfassungsschutzgesetz § 16 is the legal basis for the publication of the report. The Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution and the Landesämter für Verfassungsschutz contribute to the report. The Länder publish similar reports on an annual basis for their area of responsibility.[1]
