Spectro-polarimetry is an indispensable discipline of astrophysical research, despite its reputation as a highly specialized field. This is not surprising, as spectro-polarimetry is the gateway to investigating one of the most important ingredients in the physics of astrophysical plasmas: the magnetic field. The key role of magnetic fields in driving both the short- and long-term variability of the Sun and in triggering high-energy events, which may strongly impact our environment and society, is nowadays universally recognized.
