This study investigated self esteem and life satisfaction among Liberian refugees in Ghana. A total of 90 refugees (45 males and 45 females) participated in the study. By use of questionnaires, it was found that majority of refugees are not satisfied with their present life. It was further observed that males generally indicated they were more satisfied with life than females. No significant difference was found between males and females regarding self-esteem. A positive correlation was however found between self-esteem and life satisfaction. Implications of the findings are discussed.
