I must say Europe is quite ahead on this.
The WOSM and WAGGGS European Bureaus have recently moved to a joint
location in Bruxelles, under the heading of 'European Guide and Scout
Office'. They still have separate organizations, but of course this
setup is meant to increase cooperation.
Also, in Europe many associations have been born from the merger of
Guide and Scout associations, so they took the best of both.

AFAIK the only Guide association accepting boys is the Greek one. And
they are also quite successfull at that!
