In the second half of the 1920s and throughout the 1930s, the structural bases to internationally organize scouting finally came together. A look at the balance between national identity and global belonging in the scout movement, and the tendency of associations to accept the established order, helps explain how this structured internationalization was possible. For example, many delegates came to the 1926 conference with messages of support and encouragement from their respective governments, signed by the relevant Minister or Secretary of State of countries like Denmark, Finland, France, the United Kingdom, Hungary, Iraq, Japan, Poland, Romania, Siam, Spain, and Yugoslavia.

In France, however, that was just one of the most important changes that were carried out.

This meant that there was an ambiguous tension in many countries between the early British scouting model of 1909—connected to the military sector and based more on discipline with various levels of nationalism—and the evolved model that BadenPowell promoted in 1920—civic, socially committed with an emphasis on the education of the individual, internationally oriented, and focused on working toward peace.
