We show that NSOP 1 theories are exactly the theories in which Kim-independence satisfies a form of local character. In particular, we show that if T is NSOP 1 , M |= T, and p is a complete type over M, then the collection of elementary substructures of size |T | over which p does not Kim-fork is a club of [M] |T | and that this characterizes NSOP 1 . We also present a new phenomenon we call dual local-character for Kim-independence in NSOP 1 theories.
