The observation of a finite global polarization in agreement with
theoretical predictions has opened a new dimension in relativistic
heavy ion physics as well as in relativistic hydrodynamics, with
several intriguing connections to chiral and electromagnetic effects.
Very recent experimental observations seem to challenge the
hydrodynamic predictions. In this talk, the status of the theory of
polarization in relativistic fluids is reviewed and possible
developments in the field are discussed.
