Multiculturalism and the Human Security approach both came into prominence after the end of the Cold War. Multiculturalism is defined as various cultural groups in a country living in peace. The Human Security approach, on the other hand, refers to the transformation of the realist paradigm valid during the Cold War into human-centered security studies. Both of these approaches are proven to have global effects. In this regard, the modern “state of nature” in the $20^{th{ and 21^{st}$ centuries can be perceived through arguments of war & securitization, economic problems and challenges in dialogue. This study dwells upon a thorough analysis of the concepts of multiculturalism and human security on the basis of their combination to form Multicultural Human Security approach in an attempt to demonstrate the benefits of this conjugated approach creating the modern “state of nature”. A balanced and fair mechanism may well be argued to be possible in the international system composed of states, communities and individuals by means of this new approach in the rest of the 21st century.
