Clint Work received his Master’s from the University of Chicago’s Committee on International Relations (CIR), where he studied modern U.S.-East Asia relations and South Korean political economy. Following this, he worked in the International Crisis Group’s (ICG) Seoul office. Currently, he is a Ph.D. candidate in the Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington.
His work is broadly focused on South Korea’s foreign and national security policy, political culture, U.S.-Korean relations, and U.S. foreign policy. More specifically, his doctoral research centers on U.S.-Korean relations under President Jimmy Carter and Carter’s abortive withdrawal of U.S. combat forces from South Korea. He has published his work in both academic and popular publications, including The Diplomat, Sino-NK, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, 38 North, and the Peterson Institute for International Economics’ “North Korea: Witness to Transformation” page.
