We review how the current precision attained in the extraction of αs(mτ)from hadronic τ decays requires the inclusion of Duality Violations (DVs) in the analysis, even though these decays are largely dominated by perturbation theory. A weighted average using the OPAL and ALEPH experimental data yields αs(mZ) =0.1165±0.0012 andαs(mZ) =0.1185±0.0015 in fixed-order and contour-improved perturbation theory, respectively.
