United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon presented Beyond Right & Wrong to the General Assembly in New York on 13 September 2012. Two commentators in the film spoke during the session: Lord John Alderdice, Chairman of the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords, and Marina Cantacuzino, founder and director of The Forgiveness Project. After this screening, the United Nations adopted a resolution titled “Strengthening the Role of Mediation and the Peaceful Settlement of Disputes, Conflict Prevention and Resolution” (A/RES/66/291).
During the session, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon quoted Desmond Tutu, who said, “Forgiving is not forgetting. It is actually remembering and not using your right to hit back.”
