"Research, Humanity and Progress"
Global Regional Review (GRR) was introduced by Humanity Only (HO) through the research project sponsored and guided by Humanity Research Council (HRC) - a sub-body of Humanity Development Council (HDS). GRR intends to promote qualitative and quantitative research and findings with the help of newly emerging tools and patterns utilized in experiments, observations, interviews, analysis and surveys by encircling all major segments of regional studies and academic and research disciplines. GRR is a double-blind peer-reviewed research journal which encompasses major disciplines of regional studies i.e. economy, society, politics, geography, anthropology, art, architecture, languages, history, culture, technology and environment of Pakistan with specific reference to regional areas and powers.
