First, we prefer to resolve conÂ� fusion between the meaning that is intended by Buzan and Wæver and ourselves. More importantly, structure holds a different important connotation for RPSF, as is apparent in the next chapter. In fact, the use of the term by Buzan and Wæver is more consistent with the actual implication of the term structure. Given our conceptualization and the importance of regional structure to the RPSF, it is more appropriate to use a term that reflects the fact that the point of this term is to evaluate the type of order that operates (or does not in this case) within a given region.

As with the application of each of these ideal types, a designation of integration-based order should be made when it is through the promotion of such forms of interdependence that security issues are primarily addressed at the system level. Finally, we consider the possibility that there will be no effective security order that exhibits a consistent pattern of security management within a given RSC. Such an order is labeled unordered. Buzan and Wæver (2003) introduce the term ‘unstructured’ to characterize certain regions.

Wendt’s (1999) ‘Kantian Culture’ also falls into this category. While all of these classifications share the end result of a ‘high-level’ (Miller, 2007) or positive peace, they also all operate according to a similar set of strategies to get to that point. Rather than limiting this category to the relatively unique end result of the attainment of a security community, we focus upon the means that are employed over a significant period of time and which may have such a result. The strategy that is consistent in each of these conditions is the creation of transnational linkages across various dimensions of state and society.
