Summary/Abstract: The object our interesent represents relation between multiculturalism and liberalism, especially as a module of possible organisation of the state and the society. Indirectly, this text is about Bosnia and Herzegovina, that is, about it is present constitutional regime. It addresses the incomplenteness of that the incompleteness of that regime, and the need of changing the basis for any form of the state organisation must be and individual – a citizen and his or hers civic and other rights. Societi groups, of any kind, can not be the exclusive basis of structure of a state. The collective rights of a group, in foundation, supervene from the rights of the individual. The cultural-ethnic determination, according to the liberal theory, can not be a particular basis for the privileged postion within the state and the the society. In any case, contemporary multiculturalism represent the protection of society groups with regard to different forms of autonomy, self-rule and particular (identity) rights, where every individual (a citizen) is not being pushed back in fact remains the basic factor of the constituting of the political power.
