Building a multicultural society is one way of finding a Vivendi mode for resolving the national status of autochthonous peoples, minorities, minority communities or minority groups in the country, without conflict and war. In such a society, these peoples and groups exercise their right to resolve their political status, their economic, cultural and social development through constitutional possibilities, through international documents, all through various democratic mechanisms - referenda, agreements, etc. In that way they regulate their right to internal-internal, and sometimes external-external self-determination, and thus acquire certain elements of their international legal subjectivity. In this paper, we want to make some clarifications on the construction and functioning of a multicultural and / or intercultural society, using the research of the author Andrea Semprini and his book on Multiculturalism in the United States, with the intention that this may serve as an instructive practical-theoretical example of solving similar problems in our former Yugoslav - above all, the Sandžak area.
