Polarization is a unique probe of the intrinsic processes and physical conditions in a large variety of astrophysical systems. While a difficult technique, it is becoming more and more popular in addressing long-standing problems. Our polarization capabilities are also increasing, with new and improved instruments, but also instruments covering more electromagnetic windows. Like LSST, polarization is expected to play an important role in our science efforts in the coming decades. I will discuss a few interesting synergies and how polarization can enhance LSST's early science.
