The partnership between 3D gravity and Chern-Simons theory is well-known and powerful, but many aspects of this relation are unclear.
In this talk I'll discuss Wilson lines in Chern-Simons theory and their role in AdS3 gravity. Wilson lines are interesting objects to explore locality in Chern-Simons theory, and how they affect the partnership at the quantum level.
