Abstract: I discuss variability of polarization in the core region of parsec scale radio jets and connections between 7 mm polarization in the VLBI core and polarization at shorter wavelengths from the whole source for a sample of AGN with highly relativistic jets known as blazars. The sources show pronounced diversity in polarization behavior that is not clearly understood. I discuss possible reasons for these differences as well as the role that VSOP-2 can play in exploring the magnetic field in the most compact regions of jets.
