Political Ecology is a sub-discipline in the field of Environmental Sociology or even Sociology itself. However, at the same time it is an interdiscipline, combining different attributions and characteristics from sociology, anthropology, geography, ecology environmental studies (and sciences), and political sciences. This subdiscipline studies interactions and change of the social and natural systems with a explicit consideration of relations of power. Also, Political Ecology explores these changes with a normative approach in order to understand that there are ways of doing things in a better way, less coercive, less exploitative and more sustainable.
