Denial and/or Prevention of Identity

The existence of an identity is actively and systematically denied or obstructed from manifesting itself from within the social world through laws, decrees, speech acts, and practices of groups in power or groups seeking power. This denial and obstruction can take the form of revocation of citizenship, denaturalization, withholding of official recognition, and creating conditions preventing communal identity development.
