Special session SS6 “Multiwavelength polarization of blazar jets”, on June 20 at the EAS2020 in Leiden.

Blazars are among the most intriguing and consistently bright objects in the observable Universe. They are the most extreme class of active galactic nuclei with powerful relativistic jets that can extend out to kpc-scales from the central engine. Despite decades of systematic study of their emission across the electromagnetic spectrum we still lack a basic understanding of their intrinsic jet physics and the physical processes occurring within the supermassive black holes that power them.

The goal of this special session is to bring together theorists and observers working on blazar polarization to facilitate the building of collaborations that will allow us to tackle major future challenges in this multimessenger era.
