Abstract
The prospects of a physics program which can be addressed with polarized pr otons in HERA are summarized and compared to those of other existing or pla nned facilities. It is shown that polarised protons in HERA would provide u nique access to several spin related observables of the nucleon and the pho ton in an unexplored kinematical range, if an appropriate level of polariza tion and luminosity can be achieved.
