This thesis is a critical examination of the discursive construction of hunger using Ethiopia’s 1955, 1987, 1994 constitutions. The focus is on whether there is a match or mismatch between constitutional mandate and the level of hunger as well as the related government response in Ethiopia. It examines the relationship between the level of hunger and regime type. The findings suggest that there is a strong association between level of hunger and the absence of constitutional mandate and a strong association between regime type and level of hunger. Based on the findings, it is recommended that constitutional mandate and politicization of hunger are a necessary ingredient to protect the body from the perpetual onslaught of hunger.
