The purpose of the article is to review some concepts elaborated by social science for the analysis of nature-society relations, with a particular emphasis on the linkages between socio-economic inequalities and the (over)use of natural resources and ecosystems. The article explores three perspectives on  socio-ecological inequalities: (i) those arising from socioeconomic and political inequalities, (ii) those originated by the exploitation of natural resources in marginal or fragile areas; (iii) those linked to the local effects of processes of global environmental change such as climate change.
