English term or phrase: ...upped the ante of violence...
Ciaga (president Jamaica) was perfectly willing to use violence and most Jamaicans will tell you that it was the Jamaican Labor Party (met Ciaga als leider) that really upped the ante of violence in Jamaica's politics in the 70s.

Kan iemand mij hiermee helpen? Alvast bedankt.

Dutch translation:verhogen van de inzet
Explanation:
Normaal zou ik up the ante vertalen als het verhogen van de inzet. Je zou het eventueel kunnen vertalen als:

...dat het de JLP was die daadwerkelijk de inzet van geweld in Jamaica's politiek in de jaren 70 verhoogde...

Succes
