Stephen John Doughty (born 15 April 1980) is a British Labour and Co-operative Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Cardiff South and Penarth since a 2012 by-election that resulted from previous MP Alun Michael standing down to contest the Police and Crime Commissioner elections. He was previously a Shadow Foreign Office Minister but resigned live on television on 6 January 2016. Stephen worked for over six years in a range of campaigning roles in international charities including World Vision and Oxfam, as well as work with the Robin Hood Tax campaign and Make Poverty History.
As a senior policy adviser on poverty, development, trade and humanitarian affairs to Rt Hon Douglas Alexander MP as Secretary of State for International Development in the last Labour Government – Stephen played his part in responding to international disasters like the Haiti earthquake, pushing to help make healthcare and education free for some of the world’s poorest people, and tackling global challenges like climate change.
