Summary/Abstract: Multiculturalism is the system of society that allows people of different cultural backgrounds to live together in harmony, whereas geocultural identity is the framework by which to classify a person based on their geographical and cultural roots. If identity and culture are to be intertwined in a social contract, then in a multicultural society, people shall have a right to protection of culture only. However, in the case of geo-cultural identity, some other rights (for example, identification with one's geographical heritage and cultural values) are also fundamentally deserved by all. Since this will create a more reasonable notion of rights and justice, which is the goal of any modern society, it is rational to say that geo-cultural identity in multiculturalism can be seen as a social contract. In this paper, I have analyzed the possibility of the coexistence of geo-cultural identity and multiculturalism through a social contract.
