The spin of partons in a nucleon may be described by helicity distribution functions and transversity distribution functions. Methods for determining the quark and gluon spin structure from electroweak and strong asymmetries will be highlighted. Spin effects are also important in evaluating the polarisation level achieved after acceleration of protons to high energies. Intense polarised antiproton beams would aspire to provide new information on time-like EM form factors and on transversity.
