Since the first measurements by the EMC that triggered the so-called “proton spin crisis”, many experimental programs have been carried out to understand the spin of the nucleon in terms of its partonic degrees of freedom. It is still today an active research area in QCD phenomenology, with ongoing programs at COMPASS, RHIC and Jefferson Lab measuring spin observables to be analyzed within a QCD global analysis framework. In this talk I will review existing global QCD analyses of
spin-dependent PDFs from various groups around the world.
