In October 2006 Ms. Tracy Robinson initiated the Faculty of Law’s Workshop Series, a regular forum for the research and scholarship of members of the faculty, which she now jointly coordinates. The series encourages intellectual exchange and dialogue between the members of faculty and the bench, bar and wider university community. Ms. Robinson is also a founding member of the Coalition Against All Forms of Sexual Harassment (CASH), a women’s advocacy group established in April 2003 that attempts to define and address the problem of sexual harassment in Barbados. The Coalition has been an influential player in the refinement of the Barbados Government’s Draft Sexual Harassment Policy and Draft Bills. Since 2005, Ms. Robinson has been one of the lead researchers and members of the UNIFEM/Faculty of Law Child Support, Poverty and Family Responsibilities Research Project, working alongside Roberta Clarke (Regional Programme Director, UNIFEM), Jacqueline Sealy-Burke (Director, Grenada Legal Aid and Counselling Clinic). The project was one of the largest socio-legal research projects conducted in the Commonwealth Caribbean. As legal feminists, Ms. Robinson and her project team saw child support was a pressing family justice concern in the Caribbean and one which could not be addressed without meaningful investigation into the present workings of the system, including social service delivery within it. And so gender justice and equality is a central paradigm for constructing the project and reading its findings.
