Abstract：International order is the result of the power distribution, interest distribution and idea distribution among big powers. At present, due to the imbalance of major forces' development, the international order is at a historical stage of transition, and the major powers' international role is undergoing profound adjustment. With its peaceful rise, China's international status is rising and its international attitude is also more open and active. In the process of international order transformation, China is faced with a new opportunity for role change. The new role orientation is now the common concern of all countries in the world. The present international order is a monocentric order dominated by the hegemonic state. It is incompatible with the development of global governance due to its inherent structural defects, which is resulting in the fragmentation of the crisis and the turbulence of the international system, named after ″Atypical disorder″ state. The deconstruction of the monocentric order provides the basic scenario for China's role transformation in the international order. In this paper, we use a new role analysis framework to examine China's new role positioning. The method about role analysis is a common method of describing, explaining and predicting the behavior of actors. Position and attitude are two important dimensions to study the role of actors in the article. It is a rational choice for the roles of actors are set according to their own status and behavior. In general, there is a great relevance between the actors' roles and their positions in a particular field, the attitude of a particular topic. Due to the change of international status and attitudes, China's international role should be reconstructed during the evolution of the international order, and China should promote its role transition from a marginal participant to a leading manager. As a result, China should build a polycentric cooperative governance order, establish peaceful coexistence, mutual benefit and win-win inclusive symbiosis concepts, construct a multi-level partnership network to jointly reshape the balance of the global governance structure, enhance the rationality of global governance norms, improve the effectiveness of global governance mechanism, enrich the diversity of international public goods supply, promote the democratization process of international relations so as to promote fairness and justice in the international order. In the future, whether or not China's new role is recognized by international society will still be limited by many internal and external variables: (1) the overall reform process and effectiveness in China; (2) the construction of diplomatic capacity and resource allocation; (3) the trap in strategic overdraft and its avoidance; (4) hegemony's intent and ability of the balance to the emerging powers; (5) the international community's attitude on China's measures to cope with international challenges and so on. It is clear that there will still be a long way to go before we can make a true transformation of China's role and the transformation of the international order.
