We consider an optimization problem that minimizes a function of the form $f=f_0+f_1-f_2$ with the constraint $g-h\leq 0$, where $f_0$ is continuous differentiable, $f_1,f_2$ are convex and $g,h$ are lower semicontinuous convex. We propose to solve the problem by an inexact subgradient-based convex approximations method. Under mild assumptions, we show that the method is guaranteed to converge to a stationary point. Finally, some preliminary numerical results are given.
