We report on a QCD re-analysis of the unpolarized non-singlet world data data in the valence region up to $O(\alpha_s^{3(4)})$ correlated to the value of the strong coupling constant $\alpha_s(M_Z2)$ and the higher twist contributions. We investigate contributions of twist $\tau = 3$ and higher to the polarized structure functions $g_1(x,Q2)$ and $g_2(x,Q2)$.
