Kevin Joseph Maximilian Shinkwin, Baron Shinkwin (born 7 June 1971) is a British Conservative politician and member of the House of Lords. On 21 April 2017 he was appointed a commissioner of the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

He was educated at Ratcliffe College and graduated from the University of Hull with a degree in Politics and Legislative Studies in 1993. He worked for almost 20 years in the voluntary sector, serving in various public affairs roles, including at RNID, Macmillan, Cancer Research UK, and The Royal British Legion, where he led successful campaigns on the Armed Forces Covenant and securing reforms to the coroners service for bereaved Armed Forces families. Immediately prior to entering the Lords, he was Director of Public Affairs and Campaigns for the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, a position he resigned following his appointment to avoid a conflict of interest.

He was created a life peer taking the title Baron Shinkwin, of Balham in the London Borough of Wandsworth on 14 October 2015 and sits as a Conservative in the House of Lords.

Since becoming a Peer, he has focused on charity governance and disability equality issues. He has Osteogenesis imperfecta and in a debate in March 2017 he described Britain's abortion laws as "a licence to kill for the crime of being disabled".
