The paper which was developed at the Institute of Social Sciences within the research made for the project entitled “Social Transformations in the Process of European Integrations – Multidisciplinary Approach” provides a critical overview of the policy of multiculturalism in the Republic of Serbia. Constitutional solutions and legislation which regulate the status of national minorities do not correspond to the country’s multiethnic nature. In consequence, Serbia is reduced to a state in which the policy of multiculturalism is replaced with the policy of the state consensus with monocultural groups pertaining to the protection of their vital interests. Such political constellation befi ts only the most numerous, as well as territorially and politically homogeneous national minorities with clearly defi ned negotiating positions.
