Ultrafast manipulation and control of materials magnetization have attracted an intensive activity for decades.  Several approaches were proposed to study magnetization dynamics, from magnetic field pulses to spin polarized currents, but the several open questions remains in describing the sub-picosecond regime of magnetization dynamics.  I will present results (mainly obtained using synchrotron radiation sources) to highlight the importance of electron spectroscopy in describing the electron dynamics and how electronic structure can bring important information for the understanding of the magnetization and demagnetization processes.
