Shaun Mark Spiers (born 23 April 1962) is the Chief Executive of the Campaign to Protect Rural England and a former Member of the European Parliament.

He was educated at Brentwood School, read PPE at St John's College, Oxford and later took a Master's degree in War Studies from King's College London writing Tom Wintringham and the Socialist Way of War for the Institute of Historical Research in 1988, a paper which led to Wintringham's papers coming to King's, and formed the basis for much of Wintringham's biography as eventually written by Hugh Purcell. A keen cooperator, he served on the Co-operative Wholesale Society South East committee from 1987-1994. In 1994 he was elected Labour MEP for London South East.
