This research focuses on the right to food of refugees in Ghana with the case study area being the Ampain Refugee Camp. The study aims to find out how the right to food of refugees is fulfilled in Ghana looking for three key elements namely; food adequacy, accessibility and cultural acceptability. The study also discusses the specific entity, State or International Organization that has legal responsibility to protect and fulfil refugees’ right to food in the study area and also whether refugees can sue when this right is violated. The question that the research addresses is whether being in a poor country can in effect lessen the claim to right to food as a refugee. Empirical data was collected using interviews and focus group discussion. Participants, including officials of UNHCR, WFP, Ghana Refugee Board and refugees themselves, were collected through simple random and purposive sampling techniques. Using legal and empirical methods of analysis and literature review, it is found that the poorer a country’s economic condition, the greater the chance that the right to food of refugees will be violated.
