As with the first report published in 2011, the primary purpose of this report is to give NSOs/NSAs an insight into the membership data of the European Scout Region. The findings are based on data the European Scout Region has received from individual NSOs/NSAs, rather than purely WOSM census figures.
With this second iteration of the report, the European Scout Committee has also taken considerable time to look at the situation around the world, benchmarking itself with performance in other Regions by looking at externally held population and census data as well as data held by WOSM itself.
NSOs/NSAs in the European Scout Region will be aware that there has been much discussion in WOSM over the last 18 months that goes right to the heart of how we define membership in WOSM.
